HAVAG currently has 102 trams on 14 lines. The new trams will be used in the entire transport network.

Today, Stadler and the Hallesche Verkehrs-AG (HAVAG), part of Stadtwerke Halle-Gruppe, concluded a vehicle supply contract for 56 TINA trams. It is Stadler’s fourth order for this concept. The first trams in this series are set to roll through Halle from 2025.

Stadler first brought the newly developed TINA trams onto the market at the beginning of 2020 and have already had success with four orders after. Following the first order in 2020 by the HEAG Mobilo GmbH from Darmstadt, and the next orders from Swiss Baselland Transport (BLT) and Rostocker Strassenbahn AG (RSAG), HAVAG is now following suit with its decision to order the TINA trams. TINA stands for “Total Integrierter Niederflur-Antrieb”. “Thanks to this drive, it was possible to design the 100% low-floor vehicles to be much more spacious, more accessible, and more comfortable for passengers,” stated Stadler.

Bidirectional vehicles in two different lengths were ordered. 39 vehicles of the future model MGT-M will be approximately 30 metres long and have space for 166 passengers, 64 of which seated. The 45-metre-long vehicle type MGT-XL will be built 17 times and offers 267 passengers space, 96 of which seated.

“Today is a great day for the passengers of Halleschen Verkehrs AG – after many years of tender, decision and award processes we have signed a contract for the production and supply of 56 ultra-modern trams and we are pleased to be able to offer our passengers even more service, comfort, space and safety as of 2025. An air-conditioned passenger space, which doesn’t overheat in the warm months, quiet travel comfort, larger doorways, no steps in the entire vehicle, wider aisles, improved handholds, modern information systems and innovative driver assistance systems, including for collision warning, will be what characterise our new vehicles,” said HAVAG chairman Vinzenz Schwarz.

HAVAG currently has 102 trams on 14 lines. The new trams will be used in the entire transport network.
