Liebherr-Transportation Systems was awarded a contract by French operator CFTA Rhônexpress to inspect the air conditioning systems in the Stadler Tango trams in Lyon and to develop a solution to ensure the performance and reliability of the air conditioning systems made by a third-party supplier - also in case of major outdoor temperature differences.
