Transtech Oy and VR Group have signed supply contracts on delivery of 12 driving coaches and 15 restaurant coaches during the years 2013 and 2014. The contracts include options for deliveries of 13 driving coaches and 11 restaurant coaches. The Finnish content of the coaches is about 80 percent and the total value of the contract is about 90 million euros without the options.

Double deck driving coaches enable the InterCity2 trains to be used for pushpull operation on the final station without the change of the locomotive. That will for its part facilitate the busy hours and sensitivity for interferences on the Helsinki main railway station. Double deck restaurant coaches will introduce the modern restaurant services for InterCity trains on long distance routes.

Transtech has just completed the 20 double deck sleeping car deliveries to VR. The deliveries of 40 double deck intercity coaches to VR are beginning at the moment and they will continue until summer 2012. VR will have total 219 double deck coaches made by Transtech in traffic after all the now agreed deliveries are completed.
