Siemens Mobility Wins German Mobility Award for RRX

The Rhine-Ruhr Express (RRX) project stands out for its general dimension and its scale of innovation. Siemens Mobility has been supplying the trains and is also delivering the maintenance. In total, Siemens delivered 84 Desiro HC regional trains and it will maintain the fleet until 2050. The final train will be delivered by the end of the year.

Siemens Mobility has been manufacturing and testing the trains in North-Rhine Westphalia and it will maintain them in the German state as well – the same part of the country where they are in passenger service.
