(CIANEWS) - Tampereen Raitiotie Oy has ordered five more sustainable ForCity Smart Artic trams from the Škoda Group. The Finnish tram operator has exercised an option to the contract it signed with the manufacturer in 2017. The option is worth almost EUR 34m. The vehicles ordered now are identical to the 20 trams delivered in 2020 and 2021. Tampereen Raitiotie Oy CEO Pekka Sirviö said the Artic trams are the largest of their kind in the Scandinavian countries, and apart from their size and smart features, they are exceptional because they were designed in collaboration with the people of Tampere.
