    VR Group, a state-owned railway company in Finland, has ordered 20 new double-deck trains with aluminium structure worth over €50 million with the aim of responding to the increasing demand for this. Transtech, a subsidiary of Škoda Transportation Group, will supply new coaches to the company. Transtech Ltd is the leading European manufacturer of double deck railway vehicles.

    Maisa Romanainen, Senior Vice President of Passenger Services at VR, said: We make growth in rail traffic possible also in the future by investing significantly in additional capacity. The current rail infrastructure does not make it possible to increase the number of services during peak hours, but we can still increase the capacity of the existing trains.”

    The production of these new cars will begin next year and will enter service during 2019. The acquisition continues VR’s renewal programme for long-distance traffic, which started in 1997 and has seen a total investment of about EUR 640 million in double-deck rolling stock.
