LVS Schleswig-Holstein GmbH
The project consists in the purchase of up to 20 doubledeck coaches and 30 EMUs (electrical multiple units) for operation on the Schleswig-Holstein Mitte rail network.
The new rolling stock will contribute to passenger rail competitiveness on the concerned rail lines within the Schleswig Holstein region in Germany, thereby contributing to the objective of promoting sustainable transport. A shift from road to rail should reduce emissions and increase safety. The project also supports the liberalisation process of the railway sector. The project is therefore eligible for EIB financing under Article 309 point c) Sustainable communities / other sustainable transport of the EC Treaty.
