Siemens Mobility and Ground Transportation Systems Denmark have been pre-qualified as potential suppliers for the ‘Supporting Systems’ crucial for the implementation of the Future S-Train, which aims for fully automated operation.

The ‘Supporting Systems’ package encompasses an array of technical components essential for the seamless automated operation of the S-Train network. These include platform surveillance cameras, emergency stop mechanisms, and the development and deployment of a sophisticated system for detecting individuals and objects on the tracks.

Jürgen Müller, Director of Strategy and Rolling Stock at DSB expressed confidence in the capabilities of the two contenders stating: “The two bidders are strong players in the market and have previously delivered technology for fully automated rail systems, so we expect that each can provide an attractive offer.”

The procurement process is now at an advanced stage, with both companies poised to submit their proposals. The contract for the ‘Supporting Systems’ is slated for award by the conclusion of 2025.
