MADRID, SPAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 --  Rail technology leader
Bombardier Transportation has added a new European Rail Traffic
Management System (ERTMS) Level 2 high speed reference to its
portfolio with the award of the High Speed North-North West Corridor
rail signalling upgrade contract in Spain. The project which includes
the lines Valladolid - Leon and Venta de Banos - Burgos is being
delivered by a consortium led by Alstom that includes Bombardier and
Indra. The order, awarded by Spain's Administrator of Railway
Infrastructure (ADIF), has a total value of approximately 339 million
euro  ($459 million US), with Bombardier's share valued at
approximately 144 million euro ($195 million US).(1) 
As a major consortium partner, Bombardier will implement its globally
proven radio-based INTERFLO 450 ERTMS Level 2 system for the Venta de
Banos - Burgos section. The system features the latest generation
BOMBARDIER EBI Com radio block centre (RBC) and EBI Link balise
technology as well as the advanced EBI Lock 950 computer-based
interlocking (CBI), and EBI Track train detection systems. For both
sections of line, Bombardier will supply fixed communications, CCTV
and GSM-R technology. The contract will be delivered in 24 months and
includes 20 years maintenance and two years warranty. 
Peter Cedervall, President, Division Rail Control Solutions,
Bombardier Transportation, said: "This new contract marks
Bombardier's entry into the ERTMS Level 2 market in Spain and adds an
excellent very high-speed project reference to our global portfolio.
It is a major milestone for our presence in both the Spanish market
and the European Union as a whole. We look forward to implementing
our technology and delivering a successful system to our key customer
ADIF, together with our partners Alstom and Indra." 
Bombardier is leading the delivery on the first two contracts for the
signalling upgrade on the Mediterranean Corridor: for
Castellbisbal-Tarragona and Almussafes-Valencia-Castellon. 
Bombardier's ERTMS systems are installed on over 2,300 rail vehicles
and more than 21,000 km of track. The cost saving INTERFLO 450 ERTMS
Level 2 solution provides the highest speeds, safety and capacity, as
well as outstanding reliability and reduced implementation and
operational costs. INTERFLO 450 ERTMS Level 2 systems have been
operating at very high speeds up to 350 km/h in China since 2009.
