Bombardier Transportation GmbH Key Developments

Bombardier Transportation Opens New South African Production Site and Headquarters

Bombardier Transportation has inaugurated its new South African production site and headquarters at an event held in Isando, Johannesburg on 25th of August 2016. In April 2014, South African state-owned freight and logistics company Transnet awarded Bombardier a contract for the supply of electric locomotives as part of a ZAR 50 billion contract. The majority of the locomotives are being built at Transnet Engineering's plants in Koedoespoort, Pretoria and Edwin Swales in Durban. All bidders committed to stringent localization requirements, including technology transfer, supplier development and job creation. The new 6,000 square meter facility will produce BOMBARDIER MITRAC high power propulsion equipment for use in the Transnet Locomotives project, for which Bombardier is delivering 240 BOMBARDIER TRAXX Africa locomotives. The site will also be home to a testing center for high power traction converters and electrical cubicles and will become the headquarters for Bombardier Transportation in South Africa in October.

Bombardier Wins Contract for the Supply of 125 BiLevel Cars to Metrolinx

Bombardier Transportation announced that Metrolinx has exercised options for the purchase of an additional 125 next-generation BOMBARDIER BiLevel commuter rail cars for service with GO Transit in Toronto. This order is valued at $328 million. Production is scheduled to start in Thunder Bay in second quarter, 2018 and final delivery is expected in first quarter, 2020. The BiLevel coach is the most popular double-deck commuter rail car in North America with over 1,300 currently in operation, or on order with, transit authorities in 14 metropolitan regions across Canada and the United States. These newest generation cars feature upgrades to door and air conditioning systems, increases in energy efficiency, and enhancements to amenities that make the passenger experience even better. This order for additional BiLevel cars will support GO Transit's overall service expansion plan to meet ridership growth.
