Bombardier Flexity Outlook trams to be supplied to STIB

25 January, 2008:

Bombardier Transportation will supply as many as 102 bi-directional Bombardier Flexity Outlook trams to the Brussels transport company (STIB). This follows an agreement both the companies inked in this regard. The deal includes a firm order for 87 vehicles.

According to Bombardier, the contract is part of the five-year framework agreement concluded with STIB in October 2003. The order value of the 87 vehicles amounts to approximately 195 million euros. The delivery of the 100 per cent low-floor trams is expected to take place between April 2009 and July 2012.

The 32 m long vehicles, featuring the Bombardier Mitrac propulsion and control system, will be manufactured at Bombardierís Bruges site in Belgium, while the bogies will be produced at the Siegen facility in Germany. Over 300 vehicles of the same type are already in successful revenue service in the cities of Linz (Austria), Lodz (Poland), Eskisehir (Turkey), Geneva (Switzerland), Marseille (France), as well as in Valencia and Alicante (Spain), and will soon be put in operation in Innsbruck (Austria), Palermo (Italy), Augsburg and Krefeld (Germany).

Meanwhile, it has also been reported that Bombardier Transportation has won a second order for its next generation Green Trains. The contract, worth approximately 44 million euros, is an order for twelve 2-car Bombardier next generation diesel multiple units from Angel Trains. The trains are being provided for London Overground Rail Operations Limited (LOROL) for use on the London Overground network and for Chiltern Railways. The units will be delivered between the last quarter of 2009 and with the final delivery in the third quarter of 2010.

Production of the new Class 172 will take place in Bombardierís Derby plant. The units will feature the renowned, sophisticated Bombardier Mitrac system, offering proven reliability and energy efficiency and offering applications to secure safe and economically optimized traction power.

Bombardier Transportation has its global headquarters in Berlin, Germany with a presence in over 60 countries. It has an installed base of over 100,000 vehicles worldwide.
