Aarhus selects light rail contractors
04 Jul 2014



DENMARK: A consortium of Stadler and Ansaldo STS has been selected as preferred bidder for a turnkey contract to build and equip the first stage of the Aarhus light rail scheme. Project promoter Aarhus Letbane I/S expects to sign the contract ‘before the summer’, following more than a year of negotiations.

‘This is an important milestone for the company’, said AL Director Claus Rehfeld Moshøj. ‘Now Denmark's first light rail scheme can really get started.’

Phase I of the Letbane scheme is expected to open for revenue service in 2017. It involves the construction of a 12 km double-track tram route through the city centre from Nørreport to Lisbjerg-Lystrup via the main university campus at Skejby. The line would be connected at both ends to the Banedanmark network, allowing tram services to run south from Nørreport through Aarhus H to Odder (26·5 km) and north to Hornslet and Grenaa (69 km).

Ansaldo STS will be responsible for the infrastructure elements of the scheme, drawing on its experience of the Danish market through a 20-year involvement with the København metro. ‘It was important for us that the light rail system and trains in Aarhus be based on tried and tested technical solutions’, said Moshøj.

Stadler is to supply two types of low-floor car to work overlapping services. The long northern tram-train route from Grenaa to Aarhus H will be worked by a batch of eight 39·2 m long Tango cars similar to those operating in Lyon and Stuttgart; these will be able to carry 266 passengers and operate at up to 100 km/h. The southern service from Lisbjerg-Lystrup and Skejby to Odder and will be worked by 15 VarioBahn cars similar to those supplied to Bergen and Croydon. These cars will be 32·4 m long with capacity for up to 224 passengers. All vehicles are required to have onboard wi-fi, while the tram-train cars will also be equipped with toilets.

Up to 12 trams/h will operate on the city centre section south of Skøjby, with three tram-trains continuing to Hornslet and one to Grenaa. The southern route will see four trams/h as far as Tranbjerg, of which two will reach Odder

Aarhus light rail systems contract awarded
Friday, September 12, 2014



LETBANEN, the public company responsible for developing the tram-train network in the Danish city of Aarhus, has signed a €292m contract with a consortium of Ansaldo STS and Stadler Pankow which will supply railway infrastructure and rolling stock for the project.

The project involves constructing a 12km line with 18 stations through the city and electrifying the heavy rail lines running northeast to Grenaa (19 stations) and south to Odder (16 stations), which have a combined length of around 100km.

Stadler Pankow will supply 100km/h Tango tram-trains for services to Grenaa and Odder and 80km/h Variobahn LRVs for use on the urban section of the network. The contract is Stadler Pankow's first order from Denmark.

Ansaldo STS will be responsible for delivering infrastructure including signalling and electrification.

The consortium will maintain the infrastructure and rolling stock for six years with an option for a three-year extension.

The line is due to open in 2017, when the city of Aarhus will be European Capital of Culture.

This article seems to say that contrary to what was promised, the trams will not have onboard toilets.

These would have been the world's first trams with onboard toilets, maybe.

A lot is happening with the lightrail in Aarhus where test drives have intensified as the opening date is getting closer.
The lightrail has a thread in our local danish forum with a great deal on activity: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1254035

One of the latest posts contains a link to a video from the current series of testdrives:

Finally the light rail opens today, but only between Aarhus H and the University Hospital.

It's not known when the people along the Grenå and Odder railroad will get their train back but I have heard about january.
