On 10 May 2021, Vossloh announced that it has been awarded an important framework contract, worth almost 40 million EUR, to supply tram turnouts until 2031. Its Vossloh Cogifer Kihn subsidiary will cover all the needs for turnout and spares of STIB (Société des Transports Intercommunaux de Bruxelles) over the next ten years. Deliveries are scheduled to start in the first half of 2021.
Jan Furnivall, member of the Executive Board of Vossloh, explains: „By winning the framework contract, we successfully continue our long-standing business relationship with STIB. We have been equipping the Brussels public transport network with tram turnouts for over 35 years and are honored by the renewed trust of our customer for the next decade.“
We asked the manufacturer, how many turnouts are expected to be delivered in the period agreed. Vossloh answered: „The terms of the frame contract with STIB don’t allow us to communicate on quantities but we can say it will be hundreds turnouts.“
Vossloh Cogifer Kihn is part of the Customized Modules division within the Vossloh Group. The company, based in Rumelange, Luxembourg, employs around 160 people locally and specialises in the development and manufacturing of turnout systems.
