Commissioning begins: a further milestone for the new S-Bahn trains for Berlin and Brandenburg
Following its assembly, the first half train BR 484 already looks as good as finished.
The train will be transferred to the Stadler site in Velten in the next few days, where the commissioning process will bring it to life. This stage includes all the technical activities that are necessary to make the assembled rail vehicle operational.
Siemens is delivering the key electrical components, such as drive power converters, auxiliary converters, train control system, passenger information system, bogies and brake system. Stadler is primarily responsible for the mechanical components, including car bodies, interior fittings (walls, floors, and ceilings), seats, doors and the air conditioning system. Delivery of the main production series will be completed by 2023.
