Bombardier Transportation together with its Consortium Partner Vossloh Kiepe Receives Contract for the Supply of 40 FLEXITY Low-Floor Trams to the City of Gothenburg

Bombardier Transportation, together with consortium partner Vossloh Kiepe, has been awarded a contract for the supply of 40 FLEXITY low-floor trams to the city of Gothenburg in a European-wide public tender. The contract is valued at approximately €140 million ($156 million) with Bombardier's share amounting to approximately €97 million ($109 million). The contract also includes an option for up to 60 additional trams, valid until 2026. The new trams for Gothenburg are adapted to the city's existing light rail infrastructure and all types of environmental and climate conditions. Double glazing on all windows and doors prevents condensation and safeguards visibility and transparency in all weather conditions. The vehicles are low-floor to provide obstacle free access to all passengers, with low axle load and high passenger capacity. All versions of the vehicles provide sufficient space for wheelchairs and are supported by an electromechanical boarding device. The vehicles are also equipped with a Vossloh Kiepe propulsion system and BOMBARDIER FLEXX bogies to provide a smooth and comfortable ride. The first two trams are scheduled to be delivered to Gothenburg in spring of 2019 and will be tested and run for more than 20,000 kilometers each before final acceptance. The vehicles will gradually replace the city's current fleet and enable operator Goteborgs Sparvagar to provide the additional vehicle capacity that is needed to accommodate the rapid population growth in the city and surrounding region.
