Stadler signs a framework agreement with ATM
13 October 2020
Stadler and Azienda Transporti Milanesi S.p.A. (ATM) have signed a framework agreement for the supply of up to 80 TRAMLINK trams for the city of Milan. The framework agreement has a term of six years and an order volume of 172.6 million euros. At the same time, ATM has made an initial order of 30 vehicles.
The 80 bidirectional TRAMLINK trams will be used for both urban and interurban services. The aim is to gradually replace older rolling stock and to expand the transport offer. The excellent dynamics as well as high safety and comfort improve the travel experience for passengers.
The TRAMLINK consists of three duplex stainless steel car bodies, which are highly resistant to corrosion and reduce the weight while maintaining the strength of the structure. With a length of around 25 meters, the vehicle fits perfectly into the road traffic of the Lombardy capital. In addition, the three innovative bogies improve the smooth running of the trams in the very tight radius curves typical of Milan. This reduces the noise significantly, with the consequent benefits for passengers and local residents.
