MUNICH, May 31, 2020

Siemens Mobility, a separately managed company of Siemens AG, has been awarded a project worth 21 million euros ($23.3 million) to deliver rectifier stations and network stations for the new Stockholm Metro extension.

The project was awarded by Region Stockholm Extended Metro Administration

The project is an expansion of the metro with a Yellow line that will run from Odenplan to Arenastaden and extensions of the Blue line to Barkarby in the north west and to Nacka and Söderord in the south east. In addition, the Blue Line will be connected to the green Hagsätra branch, and a new section will be built between Fridhemsplan and Älvsjö.

Work will start immediately and will take several years to complete. Delivery will take place in stages during the construction period.

“A well-functioning metro system is an important factor in everyday life for the residents of the Stockholm region,” said Michael Peter, CEO Siemens Mobility. 

“When the yellow line and other extensions are in place, even more people will be able to use this efficient and sustainable mode of transport, and Siemens Mobility is pleased to be part of such a comprehensive and important project, which will enhance passenger service and experience.”

Scope of the project is as follows:

•    Design, installation, delivery, control, testing, commissioning and documentation for a total of 15 rectifier stations, 28 network stations and a cable contract for fully operational installation.
