Germany: Stadler to Supply 56 TINA Trams to HAVAG

Hallesche Verkehrs-AG (HAVAG) has contracted Stadler to supply 56 TINA trams for use in Saale from 2025.

The order includes 39 MGT-M trams with space for 166 passengers and 17 MGT-XL trams that can carry 267 passengers.

Stadler brought the newly developed TINA tram on to the market for the first time at the beginning of 2020

All of the trams will be two-way vehicles and will provide comfortable, quieter and more environmentally friendly transport in Saale, Germany.

HAVAG board member Vinzenz Schwarz said:

“Today is a great day for the passengers of Hallesche Verkehrs-AG - after a multi-year tendering, decision-making and awarding process, we have signed a contract for the production and delivery of 56 state-of-the-art trams and look forward to offering our passengers even better service from 2025 , comfort, space and security.

“Our new trams will feature an air-conditioned passenger compartment that does not heat up in the hot season, quieter ride comfort, larger door widths, no steps throughout the vehicle, wider aisles, improved stopping options, modern information systems and innovative driver assistance systems, including for collision avoidance.”

HAVAG currently operates 102 trams on 14 lines in the city of Saale. The new TINA trams will be used throughout the HAVAG network.

The completely stepless, barrier-free vehicles have a spacious, air-conditioned interior and spacious multi-purpose areas

The vehicles will each have cashless ticket machines and a video surveillance system. They will also leverage the BIOS system, which is a new technology developed in Saale to provide improved information and orientation for blind and visually impaired passengers.

Ansgar Brockmeyer, Executive Vice President Marketing & Sales at Stadler said:

“We are delighted that with TINA, the latest tram generation from Stadler will be used in Halle (Saale). This deal is now the fourth order and underpins the success of the innovative TINA vehicle concept. The new vehicles will reach a new dimension in terms of passenger comfort and user-friendliness. In terms of safety, a new type of collision protection system will further increase the safety of tram operations.”

This is Stadler’s fourth order for its newly developed TINA tram, which launched in 2020. The contract with HAVAG follows orders from HEAG Mobilo, Schweizerische Baselland Transport (BLT) and Rostocker Strassenbahn AG (RSAG).

Stadler will present its TINA tram at InnoTrans this year.
