Siemens Mobility Wins HS2 Contract for Station Management Systems

Siemens Mobility has been awarded a contract to deliver the station building systems for all HS2 stations: Curzon Street, Interchange, Old Oak Common and Euston.

This contract is valued at 47 million GBP and will see Siemens Mobility deliver a fully integrated station information management system across the sites.

To do so, it will deploy its Digital Station Manager technology for all stages of the passenger journey throughout the stations. This technology is already in use on London’s Elizabeth line.

The system will offer enhanced system efficiency and passenger safety, as well as improved maintainability, which will minimise the lifecycle cost by allowing the system to be regularly upgraded.

The project will be delivered from Siemens’ engineering and manufacturing site in Ashby de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire and is expected to support around 200 jobs.

Kim Kapur, Stations Client Director at HS2 Ltd said:

“Station systems such as the public address, information and fire alarms play a vital role in the smooth running of all modern railways stations – providing clear information to passengers and staff to de-stress journeys and ensure safety throughout. Siemens has a clear track record of delivering state-of-the-art station systems and we look forward to working with them – and their team at Ashby de-la-Zouch.”

Under this contract, Siemens Mobility will oversee the majority of the work while collaborating with its suppliers.

Factory Acceptance Testing for the technology will take place at its Ashby de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire laboratory testing facilities before live testing and commissioning activities are conducted on-site.

Rob Morris, Joint-CEO at Siemens Mobility UKI, said:

“We at Siemens Mobility are on a mission to transform rail travel and transport, with the imagination and ambition of 5,000 UK employees. We have a significant presence in Ashby and are delighted as a result to be working in close collaboration with HS2 and our supply chain partners to deliver this landmark project. Not only will it be delivered at Ashby, here in the UK, by the next generation of engineers, it will also help create jobs and provide a boost to the local economy.”
