Oslo Vognselskap orders metro trains from Siemens

Siemens’ Mobility Division has received an order from Oslo Vognselskap, a rolling stock-leasing company in Norway, to supply 32 three-car metro trains worth a total of approximately €180m.

The deal contract was signed in Oslo on 21 December 2010 and the trains are to start rolling out of the Vienna Siemens plant and towards the Norwegian capital in 2012.

With this order, the customer is exercising an option dating back to 2003, when the Oslo rapid-transit company ordered its first metro trains from Siemens.

To date, Siemens Mobility has delivered a total of 83 three-car metro trainsets for rapid-transit service in Oslo.
