Siemens Mobility to Supply First Battery-Powered Mireo Plus B Trains to Denmark
Siemens Mobility was awarded a contract to supply seven battery-powered Mireo Plus B trains to the Midtjyske Jernbaner in Denmark. This is the first contract for battery-powered rail trainsets in Denmark and is part of a pilot project to replace all diesel trainsets throughout the country.
The Mireo Plus B combines all the benefits of the Mireo platform with a high-performance battery system that enables trains to operate on routes with or without overhead power lines thanks to their battery hybrid drive.
The seven two-car electric trainsets will be delivered by the end of 2024 and are scheduled to operate on two lines in the Midtjylland region of Denmark.
