Bombardier successfully entered the Bulgarian rail market in 2017 with the award of two contracts to implement INTERFLO 200 mainline signalling solutions. In September 2020, Bombardier opened its first legal entity in Bulgaria as well as project management office in the capital city of Sofia. Bombardier Transportation Bulgaria LLC enables Bombardier to strengthen its support for existing and future rail projects in the country and continue to work closely with the Bulgarian Railways as well as local partners and suppliers.
Bombardier was awarded its first two contracts in Bulgaria in 2017 to implement the INTERFLO 200 mainline signalling solution on the Skutare-Orizovo and Sofia-Elin Pelin lines. This was followed in 2019, by another major contract to design and install an INTERFLO 250 ERTMS Level 1 signalling and telecommunication system along the 300-km Plovdiv-Burgas railway line – one of the most important rail signalling projects in Europe in recent years.
In 2020, this success was continued with Bombardier signing next three contracts for the design and installation of signalling systems on the Orizovo-Mihaylovo section of the Plovdiv-Burgas railway line and the Elin Pelin-Kostenets and Kostenets-Septemvri railway sections on the Sofia-Septemvri railway line.
In the same year, Bombardier has completed the upgrade of the rail signalling on the Skutare-Orizovo line, which started passenger service in October 2020.
