Mobility Division CEO - Oliver O. Hauck
Siemens manufactures light rail vehicles for North America at its Sacramento plant - a facility mainly powered by solar energy.
The Electrification and Turn Key plant is
located in Portland, Oregon.
Siemens is currently manufacturing light rail vehicles in Sacramento for Denver, Calgary, Edmonton, Portland, Hampton Roads, Charlotte, and Salt Lake City.
--Siemens supplies 1 out of every 3 light
rail vehicles in North America and offers traction electrification systems
in more than a dozen U.S. cities.
--Rail energy storage from Siemens and regenerative braking systems can save as much as 170 tons of CO2 annually.
--Siemens’ recent capital investments include the insourcing of carshell and bogie manufacturing and installing a 2MW solar energy system at its Sacramento facility.
--Big cities and congested urban areas benefit from intelligent traffic system technologies from Siemens that help manage and guide traffic.
--Siemens is helping New Yorkers on the MTA’s Canarsie subway line move faster and more safely than ever before with one of the most modern rail communications and signalling systems.
--Siemens provides baggage handling systems for more than 100 major U.S. airports.
--Siemens produces automation systems that help the U.S. Postal Service process 90 percent of the nation's mail.

One Example: New Jersey Transit (NJT) needed
to quickly add passenger capacity in a booming area on the Jersey City Waterfront.
We responded by completing the project in an impressive 40 months from notice-to-proceed
to in-service. The Hudson Bergen Line was the first Design-Build-Operate-Maintain
(DBOM) transit operation in the U.S. It was also the first in North America
to feature a 70% low-floor light rail vehicle design.
More than just moving people, it was about redeveloping an area where vacant brownfields once straddled the former Jersey Central line, which now stands a prosperous urban area thanks to the light rail.
Other success stories are: Sound Transit, Valley Metro Rail, Santa Clara Valley, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Mass-s-achusetts Bay Transportation Authority, Dubai Metro, Tram Hirashima. See above link for details.

With a full spectrum of disciplines, industry focus, and geographic reach, TranSystems will take a client’s vision from the conceptual environment to the built environment. Tran System's experience crosses the entire spectrum of transportation-related systems so the company is able to tailor an approach to a client's individual project. This would be a service to be looked into for the River Front Zephyr ride in Topeka, Kansas due to the tourism nature of passengers wanting to reserve groups of seats in advance for socializing during their ride. The "streetcar would mix with traffic but have some characteristics of a Tram--not stopping as frequently as most streetcars and catering to groups of tourists.
According to an article in Rail Transit Online (December 2008), TranSystems modified a retired Melbourne W5 streetcar in Savannah, over 70 years old, by fitting it with an on-board biodiesel generator to supply electricity to the traction motors, somewhat similar to the propulsion configuration used on several other lines, such as one in Galveston. Typically, with these kinds of low-cost systems, project managers have sought to avoid the expense and logistical aspects of overhead contact systems (OCS) for supplying power.
