Bombardier Transportation in Russia

Bombardier’s long-standing relationship with Russia began more than 50 years ago. In the late 1990s Bombardier acquired Deutsche Waggonbau AG (DWA), which began operating in Russia in 1948. From 1948 to 1995, DWA manufactured one out of every two passenger rail coaches made for the Soviet Union and later Russia.

Bombardier also supplied the electrical propulsion equipment for the new EP10 dual-voltage locomotives being built by Novocherkassk Electric Locomotive Works NEVZ.

With the WLAB 200 project, we entered the rolling stock maintenance market and, in cooperation with the Voitovich plant, overhauled 85 passenger cars for the international market.

Projects in Russia

In 2012 Bombardier, together with Russian investors, established the ‘First Locomotive Company (FLC)’ to bring modern development and manufacturing technologies to Russia for the production of traction rolling stock. Today, a locomotive factory in Engels has the capacity to produce up to 150 TRAXX F120 MS dual-system electric freight locomotives (class 2EV120) a year. In 2017, the vehicle has received type approval from the Russian federal railway certification body.
