Released under the GIC Framework
Bombardier Transportation and AB Transitio have agreed on the delivery of 11 three-car BOMBARDIER CONTESSA trains, valued at approximately 96 million euros ($137 million US). The agreement includes an option for five additional trains. The new trains will be leased by Swedish operators Länstrafiken Kronoberg, Kalmar Läns Trafik and Hallandstrafiken.
The new trains will run in the Oresund region and will be managed by local traffic authorities co-operating in Oresund and Trafikstyrelsen in Denmark. The total number of trains ordered by various customers in Sweden and Denmark is 111 (including this new order) of which 90 have been delivered and are in service.
The CONTESSA trains are a vital part of everyday life for thousands of commuters and are one of the key factors behind the successful integration of the prosperous Oresund region.
The vehicles and propulsion equipment will be designed by Bombardier in Sweden, with the propulsion equipment being manufactured at Bombardier’s production site in Västerås. The cars will be produced in Germany at Bombardier’s Hennigsdorf and Görlitz production sites, while the bogies will be produced in Siegen.
