Siemens Mobility is the system integrator and reliable partner for on time delivery of the city-shaping project Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport, the new metro railway line that will service between St Mary's, the new Western Sydney International Airport and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis. The company has been awarded a contract to deliver 12 automated, driverless 3-car metro trains, a purpose-built depot, the digital rail infrastructure including signaling, electrification, telecoms and platform screen doors as well as system integration, testing and commissioning.
The automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler has signed a contract with the CERATIZIT Group for the acquisition of CERASPIN. Based in Livange, Luxembourg, CERASPIN has over 25 years’ experience in the development and production of premium ceramic products, the majority of which are processed into rolling elements for various bearing applications.
Between now and 2030, a state-of-the-art digital train control system from Siemens Mobility will be installed as an upgrade to the conventional train control system used by operator Hamburger Hochbahn (HOCHBAHN) on its U2 and U4 subway lines. The new technology, known as CBTC (communication-based train control), will allow trains to run at shorter intervals of only 100 seconds, which will put significantly more trains on the track in the future, thereby increasing capacity. In addition, CBTC also improves punctuality, reliability, and energy consumption.
