Listen to this article

Stadler Rail has won a tender for the delivery of 48 EMUs to Hungary.

The public procurement was issued jointly by Hungarian State Railways, MÁV, and Austrian-Hungarian regional operator GYSEV in November 2012.

The result of the tender was announced on February 26.

The delivery contract will be signed by the parties during the next 30 days.

Stadler will deliver 42 FLIRT units for MÁV and six units for GYSEV.

The new four-part trains will be single voltage low-floor vehicles with a seating capacity of 200 and a maximum speed of 160 km/h.

The last train will have to be delivered by Stadler by Autumn 2015.

As a result of these developments, Stadler will create around 200 additional workplaces and employ 600 people in Hungary.

A significant part of the production of the current trains will also be completed at Stadler’s Szolnok manufacturing site.
