In its press release on May 2, Siemens Mobility announced that it had received a contract from Midtjyske Jernbaner in Denmark to supply seven Mireo Plus B battery-powered trains to operate on two lines in the Midtjylland region. They are to be delivered by the end of 2024.

The Mireo Plus B trains take full advantage of the Mireo platform, combined with a hybrid battery drive, allowing the trains to operate on routes with or without overhead power lines. The trains have a capacity of 120 passengers and reach speeds of up to 140 km/h. In addition, they have a range of about 80 kilometers when running on batteries which can be charged by regenerating the train's braking energy or from a 25 kV overhead line on electrified sections.

"The battery trains are expected to enter service at the end of 2024. This is a crucial step in our own green transition but also a significant step towards the goal of CO2- neutral train traffic throughout Denmark," said Martha Vrist, CEO of Midtjyske Jernbaner Drift A/S.


"With the acquisition of the Mireo Plus B trains, Midtjyske Jernbaner replaces conventional diesel vehicles with state-of-the-art, and locally, completely emission-free trains. It will significantly contribute to the local area by offering a sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility option. We are delighted that Midtjyske Jernbaner has chosen the energy-efficient Mireo Plus B trains from Siemens Mobility, which will also offer a high level of driving comfort and an improved passenger experience," said Albrecht Neumann, CEO of Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility.

It is Siemens Mobility's third order for Mireo Plus B trains, but it's the first one outside Germany. The technology has been extensively tested on the Desiro ML ÖBB Cityjet eco train in Austria, before being ordered by the Landesanstalt Schienenfahrzeuge Baden-Württemberg (SFBW) in 2020, and by the Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn (NEB) in 2021.
