Each bank in the consortium, in which Helaba is acting as lead manager, is providing one third of the total lending volume. The environmentally friendly electric multiple units are being leased by DAL Deutsche An-lagen-Leasing GmbH & Co. KG to HLB under a long-term contract.

HLB will be deploying the rolling stock on the Mittelhessen (Central Hesse) subnetwork through its subsidiary HLB Hessenbahn GmbH starting with the timetable changeover in December 2023. This electrified network includes the existing RMV lines 37, 40, 41 and 49 and the declared goal is to shift even more traffic from road to rail using state-of-the-art electric trains. The new regional trains will replace older, less environmentally friendly rolling stock.
