Wabtec’s Vapor Rail to supply doors to Turkish rail

Wabtec Corp. said its Vapor Rail unit signed a contract valued at about $30 million to supply electric, sliding plug doors for 440 subway cars to be built by Hyundai Rotem for the Marmaray project in Istanbul, Turkey.

 

The $4 billion Marmaray project, which includes construction of the world’s deepest tube tunnels, will connect the European and Asian sections of Istanbul upon completion in 2012. The plan includes a new, 8.5-mile section and the upgrading of 39 miles of suburban train lines.

 

The doors will be delivered beginning in 2010, with the order expected to be completed in 2012.
