Germany: Siemens Mobility to Deliver 28 Mireo Trains for Digital Node Stuttgart

Siemens Mobility has been awarded a contract to deliver 28 three-car electric Mireo regional trains to Baden-Württemberg for the Digital Rail Germany (DSD) Digital Node Stuttgart pilot project.

The trains will be equipped with the latest digital equipment, including automatic European Train Control System (ETCS) and Level 2 (GoA 2) Automatic Train Operation (ATO).

All 28 Mireo trains will have DSD equipment, including the European Train Control System and on-board units enabling Level 2 (GoA 2) Automated Train Operation (ATO)
All 28 Mireo trains will be equipped with full DSD equipment

The Mireo units will be capable of operating on steep grades and will also be approved for use throughout Austria.

Head of the State Ministry of Transport, Berthold Friess said:

“Baden-Württemberg is continuing to be a trailblazer in the digitisation of railways. Over the next ten years, the 28 ordered Mireo regional trains will primarily serve to keep passenger operations in the state as convenient and comfortable as possible while the existing fleet is being retrofitted with DSD technology. Siemens Mobility is now the second industrial partner for integrating complete DSD equipment in our trains. This will significantly accelerate the development of a fully digitised rail system in Germany.”

The framework agreement for this order was signed with the State Institute for Rail Vehicles Baden-Württemberg (SFBW). It also includes a ten-year maintenance contract, with an option to extend it for a further 20 years.

This contract is valued at approximately 300 million EUR and will see the trains delivered between November 2025 and April 2026.

Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility said:

“The Mireo will give the state of Baden-Württemberg a state-of-the-art train that provides impressive cost-effectiveness in operation and a high level of comfort and convenience for passengers. The long-term maintenance contract, which includes digital services based on Railigent X, also ensures reliable operation and high availability of the trains.”

This is Siemens Mobility’s first order to deliver trains equipped with complete DSD train equipment.

In addition, the new three-car regional trains will be fitted with 218 fixed seats and free passenger Wi-Fi.
