Liebherr-Transportation Systems supplies compact roof-mounted HVAC systems in two different versions for the passenger compartments as well as compact driver cabin HVACs, which will be integrated into the control panel alongside the control and switch elements. The systems were developed by Liebherr-Transportation Systems GmbH & Co KG in Korneuburg (Austria). They are manufactured at the company’s production site in Radinovo (Bulgaria).

The new generation of double-deck coaches for Deutsche Bahn will thus also be equipped with Liebherr technology.

This order is an important milestone in the long success story that Liebherr has been writing for many years as a leading supplier of HVAC equipment for double-deck coaches.
