Stadler to Build New Train Commissioning Centre in Hennigsdorf

Stadler has announced it will be constructing a new commissioning centre for trains in the district of Oberhavel in Brandenburg.

The site, which will be built on a plot measuring roughly 46,000 square metres in Hennigsdorf, will be used to commission trains manufactured at the Swiss company’s Berlin-Pankow plant.

The previous commissioning centre in Velten will be converted into a service centre

Existing facilities at the current site at Velten are set to be repurposed into a new customer acceptance centre, with renovation and expansion scheduled to begin between 2024 and 2027.

As part of the new site, Stadler is planning on incorporating a total of 1,314 metres of track inside the hall, with a new, modern infrastructure  including both crane and pit systems as well as fixed roof work stands. A further 744-metre-long track system is also set to be built in the centre’s outdoor area, which will feature overhead line systems for regional trains, and third rails for underground and S-Bahn units.

Jure Mikolčić, CEO of Stadler in Germany, said:

“Stadler is already firmly connected to the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region with several locations.

“Our commissioning centre in Velten is now reaching the limits of its capacity. For this reason, we have decided to establish Hennigsdorf as a location and set up our new commissioning centre with modern infrastructure there. In doing so, we are not only creating future-oriented jobs in the region, but also setting another milestone in our 20-year history of growth.”

Electricity is set to be supplied by a separate, multi-voltage supply system, and future modernisation, overhauls and accident repairs will be carried out at the existing Velten commissioning site.
