DSB signs a master agreement with Siemens


The Danish State Railway (DSB) has signed a master agreement with Siemens for the supply of up to 100 regional trains of the type Desiro Classic DMU. Starting in October 2010, Siemens will initially deliver to DSB eight units. An option has been agreed for 92 trains. These new multiple units will be built in the Siemens plant in Krefeld-Uerdingen, Germany, and are to be used on the railway line (Grenaabahn) serving Aarhus on the Djursland peninsula. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the contract.
The diesel-powered Desiro Classic DMU can travel at speeds up to 120 km/h and accommodate 116 passengers. “The high environment-friendly standard of these trains was one of the main reasons why the agreement was concluded with Siemens. Consuming 10 percent less energy and cutting CO2 emissions by more than 4 metric tons a year compared to the previous model, our product will satisfy DSB's high ecological requirements”, said Joern F. Sens, CEO of the Rolling Stock Business Unit of Siemens.
Earlier, namely in 2002, DSB had supplemented its fleet with twelve Desiro Classic multiple-unit trains. Siemens Mobility has already delivered 550 trains of this type worldwide. Diesel-powered Desiros are currently being used in Germany by the nationwide rail operator Deutsche Bahn and a number of regional rail operators such as Vogtlandbahn (a subsidiary of Arriva), Kahlgrundbahn, Nordwestbahn, Ostmecklenburgische Eisenbahn and Lausitzbahn. Outside Germany, Desiro Classic trains are in service in Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Greece, Hungary and Romania as well as in California on the line linking the cities of Oceanside and Escondido.
Technical data of the Desiro Classic DMU
The car body consists of a self-supporting aluminum construction made of extruded sections. The front end is a sandwich construction and bonded with the bodyshell. The diesel multiple unit runs on two powered bogies and one non-powered inter-car bogie each with a rubber-spring primary suspension and level-controlled air-spring secondary suspension. The multiple unit is powered by two autonomous diesel engine sets, each being located under the high floor sections between the vestibule and the powered bogie. Each set consists of a 6-cylinder, turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine and a mechanical five-speed automatic gearbox.
