Bombardier is delivering 18 low-floor FLEXITY vehicles for the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, that will move over six and a half million in the first year of passenger service.
The Gold Coast tram has been specifically styled by Bombardier’s Industrial Design team in Brisbane to include a wave motif on the cab front. The tram is 43.4 m long with seven modules for higher capacity and better passenger flow. Connecting 16 stations, the 13 km route passes through many of the city’s key activity centres. Designed with Queensland's diverse population in mind, the fleet of electrically powered, low-floor trams are based on Bombardier’s highly successful FLEXITY family of light rail vehicles that combines proven technology with continuous improvement and innovation.
It features the signature blue and gold colors of the Gold Coast and is the first light rail vehicle in the world designed and built to carry surf boards on specially designed racks. The vehicles are installed with the energy efficient MITRAC propulsion system and FLEXX bogies for a smooth, comfortable ride.
Bombardier Transportation has delivered the INNOVIA APM 300 system for Shanghai Metro’s Line 8 Phase 3 project, also known as Pujiang Line. The system was supplied by Bombardier’s Chinese joint venture CRRC Puzhen Bombardier Transportation Systems Limited (PBTS) and is the result of an order placed by Shanghai Shentong Metro Co. Ltd. in June 2015 for a turnkey automated people mover (APM) system with 44 vehicles.
Shanghai’s Pujiang Line is a new 6.6 km, dual-lane elevated, driverless APM system that solves Pujiangzhen’s first-and-last-kilometre challenge by connecting this large residential district to the Line 8 interchange at the Shendu Highway Station. The INNOVIA APM 300 system, Bombardier’s latest generation of highly-reliable APM technology, offers an eco-friendly passenger experience with a focus on efficiency and safety. It features low-noise and low-vibration rubber tires, while its 1.9-metre wide doors facilitate boarding and exit, reducing the time required at each stop. Paired with the CITYFLO 650 solution – an innovative communications-based train control technology – the INNOVIA APM 300 system also increases the line’s capacity by safely reducing the time and distance needed between each vehicle travelling on the line. In addition, the absence of a driver’s cabin means passengers sitting in the front have a 270° view angle to enjoy the spectacular landscape along the Pujiang Line.
In 2007, Deutsche Bahn (DB) ordered the first fleet of TALENT 2 electric multiple unit trains from Bombardier. The trains serve as the backbone of DB’s regional transport service and they are used on DB’s regional network throughout Germany.
The DB trains operate in the following regions: Nuremberg, Cottbus-Dresden, Leipzig-Halle, Berlin-Brandenburg, Aachen-Sigen, Frankfurt-Treysa, Rostock-Wismar and Stuttgart-Konstanz.
Developed in conjunction with Italian partner AnsaldoBreda, the V300ZEFIRO VHS train is Europe’s fastest series production train and offers unprecedented capacity and comfort levels in the high-speed segment. With the V300ZEFIRO, passengers can travel from Naples in the south, to the northern Italian city of Milan, in under five hours. With multi-voltage technology and TSI compliance, it can operate on any high-speed rail network and across country corridors.
For the last 10 years, CRH1 high-speed trains have been transporting passengers across China. One of the world’s fastest trains, the CRH1 offers various sleeping accommodations, ranging from reclining seating to luxury beds. A non-sleeper version has also been produced, with a dedicated VIP car incorporating First Class seating for a comfortable and pleasant passenger experience.
Vienna Transport Authority (Wiener Linien) and Bombardier Transportation signed a contract for the manufacturing and maintenance of 119 FLEXITY light rail vehicles in June 2015. This contract includes a 24-year FlexCare maintenance management system agreement.
The new FLEXITY trams will operate in Vienna from 2018 onwards, gradually replacing the previous high-floor vehicles in the existing fleet.
The 34 m long FLEXITY trams accommodate 211 passengers, have a 215 mm high entrance and feature wide passageways and spacious multi-purpose areas. The new vehicles will be equipped with air conditioning, LED lighting, video surveillance and screens with passenger information, including updates on next stops, line connections and departure times. The modern cab will be equipped with an intelligent driver’s desk which is operated via touchscreens.
Bombardier Transportation delivered a turnkey INNOVIA APM 300 automated people mover system at Dubai International Airport, one of the world’s busiest airports. The system started its operation in February 2016.
As part of Dubai Airport’s expansion program, the new APM system connects the existing Terminal 1 to the new Concourse 4. The driverless INNOVIA APM 300 system uses Bombardier’s CITYFLO 650 communications-based automatic train control technology and offers short headways, high reliability and efficient operation. The fleet of 18 driverless INNOVIA APM 300 vehicles operate as five-car trains over a 1.5 km elevated system, are are designed to carry 200,00 passengers daily.
Bombardier's scope included the design, supply and installation of eletrical and mechanical equipment, including project management, systems engineering and integration, testing and commissioning.
The TALENT 3 trains for Abellio will be configured into 24 three-car and 19 five-car train sets, each with 163 or 273 seats respectively. These vehicles will be equipped with Wi-Fi and provide easy access for travellers with limited mobility, as well as space for either 24 or 39 bicycles.
Bombardier is delivering 665 regional AVENTRA vehicles to Angel Trains, for use on Abellio’s East Anglia rail franchise in the United Kingdom and providing maintenance services support.
The fleet of 89 five-car and 22 ten-car trains will deliver more passenger comfort, together with greater connectivity, shorter journey times and more reliable trains.
Passengers will benefit from features such as air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, as well as socket and USB points, while operators will benefit from the reduced weight, increased capacity, improved energy efficiency and reliability.
Bombardier has been contracted to supply and maintain 750 AVENTRA vehicles for operation on the South Western franchise in the United Kingdom. The trains will provide additional capacity and comfort on suburban networks, as well as routes between London Waterloo, Windsor, Eton Riverside and Reading.
In addition to delivering a significant performance increase with innovative energy benefits such as regenerative braking, the AVENTRA trains will transform the passenger experience with features including wide-open gangways between carriages, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, 2+2 seating, USB sockets at seat locations, universal toilets and improved passenger information system. The new units will be supplied in both five-car and 10-car configurations.
