TŽV Gredelj Starts Cooperation With Siemens Mobility On Nightjet Coaches

posted on 15th May 2023 16:46

TŽV Gredelj has been providing the production and maintenance of rolling stock in Zagreb for more than 120 years. Siemens Mobility has been among the important customers since April of this year. Several months of negotiations resulted in the signing of the cooperation agreement, thus making TŽV Gredelj successful in international competition. The latter company will ensure final assembly of 35 coaches for ÖBB’s new nightjet rakes, with approximately 70 production workers, logisticians, technologists and engineers being employed.

The first eight coaches were taken over at the Zagreb-Resnik freight yard on 20 April 2023. After their transport to the TŽV Gredelj facility, the technical inspection of the condition and preparation for the execution of the contracted works according to the schedule began. The end of the first part of cooperation is planned for late 2023 with possible further continuation of other selected projects.

Ivan Petríček, TŽV Gredelj Chairman of the Board, said: „The professional teams of Siemens Mobility and TŽV Gredelj are actively cooperating on our first project. We expect that the cooperation will bring not only new business opportunities but also significant orders of rail manufacturers and strengthen our position on the rolling stock market.“
