Denmark: The German company has signed agreements worth €270 mln with the national operator DSB and infrastructure manager BDK to automate Copenhagen S-bane network.

The agreements build on the original 2011 contract to equip the current fleet with an on-board CBTC system to control traffic.

Siemens Mobility is now to upgrade the entire 170 km long S-bane network to the highest grade of automation, GoA4, and supply the on-board CBTC system for the new trains to be purchased. The €3.5 bln tender for 226 unmanned trains was announced in May 2023. Alstom, CAF and a consortium of Siemens Mobility and Stadler have qualified for the competition, but the winner hasn’t been selected yet. ROLLINGSTOCK has included this tender in the top 10 events of 2023.

The supply of the new trains is to begin in 2030, with the unmanned traffic on the S-bane to start in 2033.
