Powering FLIRT regional trains

Over 1'000 FLIRT regional trains driven by ABB traction system.

ABB won an order for traction equipment from Stadler Rail in 2003 to equip the electric multiple unit of the type FLIRT (Fast Light Innovative Regional Train) originally developed for Swiss Federal Railways (SBB).

Drawing on the successful project, ABB won repeat orders in the following years to equip further trains of the FLIRT platform ordered by operators in Algeria, Belarus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Serbia, and Sweden.

ABB’s traction system covers all standard line voltages and multi-system solutions and the robust traction technology ensures high performance and reliability under all weather conditions and minimizes energy consumption.
