ÖBB Infrastructure has already placed an initial call-off order for five trains worth around €60m.
The approximately 66.5m-long trains will consist of a railcar, a motorised low-floor control car and a water car that can carry up to 45,000 litres of water. The water car will also provide up to 56 seats. Each train will provide space for up to 300 passengers in the event of a rescue. The trains will have a top speed of 160km/h and can operate under electric, diesel-electric and battery traction.
The first trains are scheduled to enter into service by mid-2024 at the latest and will operate in the Koralm, Semmering and Brenner base tunnels, replacing ÖBB’s first generation fire-fighting and rescue trains.
The trains will also be able to operate across ÖBB’s entire network.
