Stadtwerke München is continuing its modernization of the Munich Transport Company MVG’s metro fleet. On 27 April 2022 SWM and MVG took delivery of the first of a total of 22 type C2 metro trains of the third delivery series (the so-called 2nd option) at SWM’s technical base in Fröttmaning near Munich. There, the train will now be made ready for operation, undergo extensive tests and be approved for passenger service.Together with the delivery of the first train from the 2nd option, Stadtwerke München commissioned Siemens Mobility to deliver an additional 18 six-car type C2 metro trains. Siemens was able to prevail against several competitors in a Europe-wide tender. As a result, a total of 85 C2 trains will be operating in Munich’s metro system in the future. The metro trains are particularly ecofriendly and energy-saving. In selecting the materials, priority was given to environmentally friendly components that are up to 97% recyclable. And like all modern metro trains, the trains feed energy back into the power grid when they brake, further improving the CO2 balance in Munich and making public transport even more sustainable. The vehicles will be manufactured at the Siemens Mobility plant in Vienna and delivered in 2024/2025. The bogies will be supplied by the company’s factory in Graz.
