Stadler to Design and Build 26 Multiple Units for Slovenian Rail Operator

Stadler is designing and building 26 multiple units (single and double-deck) for the Slovenian state rail operator Slovenske Železnice. The order comprises eleven FLIRT EMU trains, five FLIRT DMU trains and ten KISS EMU trains, plus an option for 26 additional vehicles.

These very different types of train are being engineered in a way that allows mixed compositions within the fleet. This is Stadler’s first contract from Slovenia and a hard-fought victory.

Multiple Units for Slovenia

Back in the late 1990s, Stadler submitted a bid for a contract to deliver 30 multiple units to Slovenia, but lost out to the competition after a hotly contested tender.

The contract for the fleet capable of mixed traction consists of the engineering, construction and delivery of 11 four-car FLIRT EMU trains, 5 three-car FLIRT DMU trains and 10 three-car double-decker KISS EMU trains, including warranty coverage. It includes an option for 26 additional vehicles. The contract is valued at approx. 170 million euros.

Peter Spuhler, owner and CEO of Stadler, said:

“It delights us even more that 20 years later, our second attempt has been successful and we have managed to break into the Slovenian market”

Dusan Mes, General Manager of Slovenske Železnice, commented:

“The signing of this contract with Stadler is the first step toward modernising rail passenger transport in Slovenia. With new modern trains we are taking a step forward in the renewal of our fleet and as a result in the satisfaction of our customers”
