The MoU lays the foundation for the two parties to develop and undertake joint testing of railway equipment, collaborate with rolling stock manufacturers and prepare joint applications for international projects.

STM CID and DB Systemtechnik have agreed to undertake a number of activities together including the development of procedures to evaluate passenger comfort and test a number of European railway equipment and track elements on the 1520mm track.

They will also organise joint activities to introduce digital twin models for locomotives and rolling stock manufactured by Siemens and Bombardier (now Alstom) for Deutsche Bahn.

An important part of the agreement is the possibility to run a pilot project using a specialised diagnostic and comfort monitoring system developed by STM CIXD for the Velaro and Desiro platforms. Special emphasis has also been placed on sharing professional experience between Russian and German companies gained from projects using these platforms.

The document also covers preparation of joint applications for open bidding procedures to introduce the condition-based monitoring system manufactured by STM CID in various railway equipment.
