Stadler Rail CEO Mr Peter Spuhler told a press conference that the two companies are already planning to bid jointly for an LRV contract in Krakow. “Together we want to strengthen our market position in the region,” Spuhler says. “Our companies complement each other very well and we will be stronger together in this very competitive market segment.”

Over the last seven years Solaris has supplied its Tramino LRV to the cities of Poznan and Olsztyn in Poland and Braunschweig and Jena in German. It also secured a contract in March 2015 to supply up to 41 Traminos to Leipzig.

The Tramino for Olsztyn is on display in the outdoor area at InnoTrans.
