The Thameslink project
In the UK, we have worked with the Government on the complex and highly sophisticated upgrade for the Thameslink project. This historically overcrowded rail line carries 50 million passengers into London every year. A successful Public Private Partnership (PPP) was established with our finance experts to deliver a total Siemens solution that combined world-class rail engineering technology along with the financial package needed to deliver the landmark £1.6 billion Thameslink Rolling Stock Project.
Enabling the design, manufacturing, delivery and maintenance of the carriage fleet, we offered our project finance expertise by acting in an advisory and structuring capacity, managing complex risks throughout project stages, and providing customized financing for 1,140 energy-efficient rail carriages as well as a contract for construction and lease of two depots.
