Sirio Florence Tram

Hitachi Rail’s Sirio platform is designed with totally low and flat floors, allowing for easy boarding as well as good movement inside for standing passengers.

The interior layouts are reconfigurable to meet all customer requirements in terms of capacity, comfort and mode of service. The driver’s cab has a very broad glass in front which allows excellent visibility.

The contract for the delivery of trams for Florence Tramway included: 17 trams for Line 1, 22 trams for Line 2 and seven trams for Line 3.

These 32-metre trams are bi-directional vehicles composed of five body cars on three bogies (two motor and one trailer). The traction system is equipped with two IGBT inverters for each motor bogie, each one controlling a single motor. These vehicles are 100% low floor and are equipped with air conditioning. With a capacity of 276 passengers, each tram features two areas equipped for people with reduced mobility for greater accessibility.

The trams deployed on Lines 2 and 3, both of which connect the Peretola Airport and Careggi Hospital to Santa Maria Novella railway station, have the same exterior livery and vehicle interior as those already in service on Line 1. As a result, the trams can be deployed on each of the three lines as required by the operator.

Sirio Zhuhai Tram

Hitachi Rail’s Sirio platform is designed with totally low and flat floors, allowing for easy boarding as well as good movement inside for standing passengers.

The interior layouts are reconfigurable to meet all customer requirements in terms of capacity, comfort and mode of service. With a broad glass window, the design of the driver's cabin allows for excellent visibility.

There are different types of power available, from the classic catenary, to the supercapacitors on board, to the ground power supply. The supercapacitor is a system for the recovery of energy that allows energy savings, a greater efficiency of the service and a more sustained respect for the environment.

The contract with CNR Dalian for the delivery of 10 five-module trams was signed in 2012.

The 32-metre trams have a capacity of 279 passengers, 64 of which are seated.

The line these trams serve uses the 'TramWave' ground power supply to enable catenary-free operation. This was specifically requested for this project due to the high incidence of typhoons in the region and guarantees extra safety for passengers both inside and outside of the vehicle.

Turin Tram

The new tram platform developed in Italy by Hitachi Rail is the evolution of the previous Sirio tram, and introduces innovative technologies and contents to support performance and reliability of commercial service.

Hitachi Rail and GTT (Gruppo Torinese Trasporti S.p.A.) signed the framework agreement for the production of the new trams for the City of Turin in May 2020. The framework agreement includes the supply of 70 new trams and a 4.5 year warranty.

The contract has been split into two tranches: the first one includes the supply of 30 vehicles. The delivery will start from Autumn 2021 and the trams will be produced in Hitachi Rail’s Italian plants of Naples, Pistoia and Reggio Calabria.

The 28-metres trams will offer a range of innovations ensuring a unique travel experience: bright environment and full immersion in the outside urban landscape thanks to the wide glass windows and the transparency of lateral parts of the roof of the vehicle; lighting and conditioning systems evenly distributed along the compartments to allow maximum comfort to the passengers; handrails and hanging hand grips placed throughout the vehicle; wide standing and passing areas and two dedicated areas to ease access for people with reduced mobility and information to passengers about the line thanks to external displays placed on the side and at both ends of the tram, at an ideal height to be clearly visible - also to passengers on wheelchairs.

The tram has essential and streamlined sides as well as a dynamic and modern front-end ensuring maximum visibility for the driver and the particular shape of the vehicle minimises the impact of the volume of the entire tram in the urban context in which it operates.

The livery will feature the two colours of the City, yellow and blue, in consistency with those of the new GTT bus fleet.

  • Length: 28000 mm
  • Seats: 36
  • Standing Passengers (6 pass/m2): 218
  • Total Capacity: 254
  • Maximum Speed: 60 km/h
