Stauff wins contract for EMR Auroras

Sheffield-based hydraulic system component manufacturer and supplier Stauff has been selected by East Midlands Railway and Hitachi Rail to supply a range of components for EMR’s new Class 810 Aurora bi-mode fleet.

The trains are being assembled at Hitachi’s facility in Newton Aycliffe and are due to enter service on EMR’s inter-city routes between London and Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham from 2023. 

Stauff will provide key products including specialist clamping solutions, tube manipulation, flexible hose assemblies and fittings.

    It is known in the rail community that Stauff has been part of Hitachi Rail’s global supply chain since 2012 and this close relationship supports jobs in Sheffield and enables the company to invest and innovate its own manufacturing techniques in order to deliver cutting-edge intercity trains for the UK. When it enters service in 2023, the truly British built Aurora fleet will offer significant advances on EMR’s existing fleet, with passengers benefiting from more seats and modern interiors. The related intercity trains will be bi-mode, enabling them to run on both diesel and overhead electric power. They will also feature air conditioning, free WiFi throughout, plug sockets and better passenger information screens. Dr. Güntürk Üstün
