Bautzen site

New test centre in Bautzen

On December 11, 2019, we unveiled a new test centre at our site in Bautzen, Germany, which is now equipped with the latest innovative production and testing technologies. The site is taking on a pioneering role as a competence centre.

At the highly modern test centre, approximately 50 employees can work in three shifts. Three different vehicle types of up to 120 metres in length can be tested simultaneously. What’s new is that the individual cars are being tested before the train is assembled and, finally, subjected to in-depth testing. This not only enables faster testing, but also more flexible testing which increases capacity to 600 cars per year. With the consistent use of digital technologies, all data is digitally linked to optimize production, testing and all processes from logistics to quality management.
