Alstom has manufactured a total of 163 fourth-generation DT5 metro vehicles for the Hamburg Metro, fulfilling several orders from Hamburger Hochbahn AG.
The final vehicle ordered for this fleet is now on its way to Hamburg from Alstom’s plant in Salzgitter.
Throughout this project, 652 bogies, 815 air-conditioning systems, 978 traction motors, 1,304 pneumatic brakes and 2,119 passenger compartment doors were installed in a total of 489 carriages, along with countless bolts and miles of cable.
This work has been ongoing since Hochbahn initially ordered 27 DT5 vehicles in 2006.
Prior to this project, Alstom also supplied the DT2, DT3 and DT4 fleets for the Hamburg Metro.
