ZF Friedrichshafen is providing transmissions and torque (support) arms for Siemens Mobility’s Desiro MainLine.

The ZF Friedrichshafen AG Commercial Vehicle and Special Driveline Technology division signed a contract to supply Siemens Mobility driveline components to be used in trains of the Belgian state railroad. More than 2400 transmissions of the E-Rail S 20 A-N type are to be installed in the new electric multiple units of the Desiro MainLine model range. The €18 million supply agreement also includes torque (support) arms as well as engine couplings. Finalized trains will be delivered by 2011 to the Belgian state railroad where they will be used in regional train traffic. Production of the 305 multiple (train) units commences at the Siemens plant in Krefeld-Uerdingen, Germany, this summer.
