GYSEV orders Siemens EMUs

GYSEV has placed an order with Siemens for five Desiro ML electrical-multiple units (EMUs) to operate cross border services between Hungary and Austria.

Subject to financing, Siemens will deliver the three-car vehicles from mid-2016.

“The new trains represent a milestone for future rail traffic between Deutschkreuz and Vienna, and between Pamhagen and Vienna in cooperation with Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB),” said Csaba Székely, managing board director of GYSEV.

The trains will be built in Germany at Siemens’ Krefeld site.
