Siemens Mobility has been commissioned by Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn NEB to deliver seven, two-car Mireo Plus H trains for the Heidekrautbahn network RB27 in the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region. Equipped with a fuel cell drive system and a lithium-ion battery, this second-generation hydrogen train provides completely CO2 emission-free mobility. The Mireo Plus H is a highly advanced, second-generation hydrogen train featuring a hydrogen-powered traction system with 1.7 MW of traction power providing up to 1.1 meter per second acceleration and a top speed of 160 kilometer per hour. In addition, the train has the lowest lifecycle costs on the market and can be refuelled in just 15 minutes. The Mireo’s energy-saving and environmentally friendly design is based on its self-supporting, welded, and integral lightweight aluminium construction. The train’s improved aerodynamics together with its energy-efficient components and intelligent electrical system management also help reduce emissions and the use of resources.The two-car trains feature comfortably designed, spacious interiors. Passengers benefit from free Wi-Fi, dynamic real-time displays of passenger information, a specially designated family area, and two multi-purpose areas with generous space for buggies, wheelchairs and up to twelve bicycles. The powered cars have three doors on each side that enable passengers in wheelchairs or with buggies to easily board or exit the train, even on lower platforms. A new signage design in the cars also facilitates speedy, uncomplicated and, above all, barrier-free passenger exchanges. The order placed with Siemens Mobility also includes a ten-year service and spare parts contract (TSSSA) up to 2034. Siemens Mobility will thus ensure the availability of the trains over the entire term of the transport contract. The service contract not only covers the provision of all necessary maintenance, servicing, and repair activities, but their continuous further development and adaptation to the customer-specific use of the trains operating on the Heidekrautbahn.
