New generation of metro trains

After the unveiling of the DT5 multiple unit train, a new generation of metro trains will soon enter service in Hamburg, Germany. The new vehicle, developed by the consortium Alstom/Bombardier Transportation under a contract from Hamburger Hochbahn AG, is low on pollution, resource-friendly and quiet, while at the same time offering very high safety standards and enhanced ride comfort. Alstom LHB, responsible for the design of the train, made extensive use of material from ThyssenKrupp Nirosta. The body of the DT5 is made completely from Nirosta 4318 stainless steel and is based on a new lightweight design concept. The full order includes the delivery of up to 67 vehicles by 2015.
