Halle TINA trams in build at Stadler
Posted on 20th November 2023 at 09:53
In August 2022 the HAVAG transport operator in the German city of Halle placed a EUR 168M order with Stadler AG for 56 100% low-floor double-ended TINA trams (TINA stands for Total Integrated Low Floor Drive).
39 30.4m cars will accommodate 166 passengers (64 seated) while 17 45.4m cars will have space for 267 passengers (96 seated).
The 2.3m wide trams will have a low-floor of 350mm (290mm at the doorways). They will start to replace the 60 Duewag MGT6D trams dating from 1996-2001 from 2025.
Now the first trams from the order are under construction at the company’s Berlin factory; unlike the original artist’s impression, they trams will carry the traditional red and silver livery of the city rather than all-over silver.
TINA trams are already operating in the German city of Darmstadt and have been ordered by Rostock.
Halle (population 242 000) has the largest tramway network in Sachsen-Anhalt, 81.7km; the first metre-gauge tram ran in 1882 and the first electric tram in 1891. In 2023, they had 102 trams running on 11 lines.
