The Swiss train builder Stadler has awarded Westermo business entity a contract worth about 30 MSEK to provide networking solutions for a new fleet of trains for Swiss Federal Railways, SBB. Westermo will supply data communication technology for a new generation single-decker trains called FLIRT Evo.
