According to the court, based on a complaint by Alstom, the Swiss electronic signature was not recognized by Austria or the EU and so the tenders were canceled. Now after Stadler fought back the Supreme Administrative Court in Vienna cleared the company and the tender can continue.

As we reported here the tender was announced by the ÖBB in 2019 and the winner, Stadler, was announced two years later. After some legal battles, the story goes on.

The tender is for 186 KISS-type double-decker multiple-unit trains, it has a ten-year term and a total volume of up to €3 billion. The framework agreement covers the manufacture and delivery of various four-car, five-car, and six-car double-decker multiple-unit KISS trains. Including this agreement with ÖBB Stadler has already sold over 550 KISS-type trains. Manufacturing for this tender will be done at Stadler’s new center for double-decker trains in St. Margrethen (CH). In the coming weeks more we can expect more information on the vehicles.

“We are extremely pleased that, after a delayed tendering process, we have now been legally awarded the contract by ÖBB. Vehicles from Stadler have been operating successfully on Austrian rails for years. The fact that we are now also able to supply the next generation of double-decker multiple-unit trains to Austria with ÖBB fills us with great pride,” says Peter Spuhler, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Group CEO a.i. of Stadler.
