Finland's national railway operator, VR, has confirmed that Stadler is the preferred bidder to supply 20 new electric trains for the Helsinki suburban network. It is planned to replace 34 Sm2 trains built between 1975 and 1981.

Railway Supply magazine, referencing IRJ, reports that VR Group announced a tender for the purchase of new electric trains in 2019, and on October 24, Stadler was selected with the official conclusion of a contract worth 250 million euros, subject to a 14-day appeal period.

The contract will include the supply of spare parts, tools, training and documentation, as well as the option to purchase up to 50 additional electric trains and maintenance services.

VR Group wants to put the new trains into commercial operation in 2024 and plans to replace all its Sm2 electric trains in 2026.

Stadler previously won a contract to supply VR with 60 diesel-electric locomotives, with an option for up to 100 additional locomotives, as well as maintenance services.
