In June 2013, Bombardier has won a contract from S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH to deliver 60 new commuter trains. They feature innovative technology, favorable energy consumption as well as low maintenance and repair costs for the operator. The three-car electric multiple units are characterized by their striking and dynamic exterior design. Thanks to the carbody’s optimized shaping, the trains do not require sliding steps for gap bridging. Valuable experience from the previous series has been incorporated in the development of the new S-Bahn trains. The result is a train with innovative technology combined with low energy consumption as well as low maintenance and servicing costs. For the first time the trains for Hamburg will be equipped with a compact air conditioning system. The heating system operates with an energy saving heat pump which uses waste heat from the traction equipment system to heat the passenger compartments.
