Stadler to Deliver Further Trams to Krakow

Stadler has won a further contract in Poland.

Operator MPK Kraków has ordered further low-floor trams from Stadler. The associated framework agreement states that Stadler will deliver up to 60 new trams. Coupled with a contract already issued in January 2018, Stadler will now deliver up to 110 vehicles to Krakow.

After the positive assessment of Stadler’s offer, a new framework agreement has been signed for the delivery of up to 60 trams, type TANGO Kraków Lajkonik II. At the same time the two parties signed two contracts for the delivery of 10 and 25 vehicles. The value of the framework agreement is in the region of 120 million CHF (113 million euros | 123 million USD). Stadler will deliver the vehicles in mid-2023. In September 2019 Stadler was the only rolling stock manufacturer to submit a bid for this tender to MPK Kraków.

The trams ordered are a continuation of the currently produced series of the type TANGO Kraków Lajkonik. These trams are low-floor, three-car vehicles with four bogies. The doors are 1.4m wide, which allows for a rapid exchange of passengers at stops. The design at the front of the vehicle is intended to protect pedestrians.

One of the new features in these trams are the back rests for standing passengers. Each tram can accommodate 75 seated and 163 standing passengers, i.e. a total of 238. The vehicles will be equipped with air-conditioning, a ticket machine, a passenger information system, a monitoring system, USB ports for passengers to charge their smartphones, and a passenger counting system. The ergonomic cabin and the comfortable driver’s seat create a comfortable working environment for the driver.

The trams are also environmentally friendly in their design: they will come with regenerative braking. Furthermore, two of the trams will be equipped to operate without an external power supply. The remaining trams can be upgraded to this solution in the future.
