As early as 2012, r2p was engaged by Stadler Pankow GmbH to develop a concept for the substitution of existing systems that have passed their prime – without undue transaction costs, while at the same time being innovative and future-oriented.
After having implemented the concept successfully, r2p was again chosen by Stadler to keep on following this promising pathway. The order encompasses the delivery of recorders, driver and rear view mirror system monitors, saloon cameras and Driver Only Operation cameras substituting rear mirrors. It constitutes one of the most extensive new procurement order placed by the successful rail manufacturer. Stadler Pankow GmbH will deliver a total of 42 Variobahn trains to the Bochum-Gelsenkirchener Straßenbahnen Aktiengesellschaft (BOGESTRA) between 2016 and 2020, with an option on eight additional vehicles. With this delivery, BOGESTRA will dispose of the largest fleet of Stadler’s Variobahn among all public transport operators. The first trains are to be delivered already in Q 3-4/2016 – a record-breaking short time span between the placement of order and delivery that stirs also r2p’s ambition.
René Seliger, Shareholder and Project Director at r2p, says: „We are very proud to contribute with a solid concept and innovative products to the largest Variobahn-fleet combined at one operator.”
