Rostock: Tramlink 6N2, Germany

Delivery: 2013-2014

The new 5-part multihinge traction vehicles will be 32 metres long and 2.65 metre wide. As a special feature, the railcar width reduces to 2.30 metres at the entrance level. The vehicles are equipped with extremely reliable, state-of-the-art electric traction and control technology from Vossloh Kiepe. The tram’s most striking feature is the extremely low energy consumption.

This is the result of reusing the breaking energy: high-performance condensers – so called Supercaps –are mounted on top of the vehicle’s roof and save the energy which is created when the breaks are applied. This energy is then reused for acceleration, heating or air-conditioning. This reduces the amount of energy needed from the overhead line.
