Bombardier wins Mexican LRV contract

Posted on August 22, 2005

Bombardier Transportation was awarded a contract from Mexico's Monterrey Mass Transport Authority (Metrorrey) to design and build 14 high-floor light-rail vehicles (LRVs). In addition to Bombardier, the contract includes consortium partners Siemens and Grupo Garza Ponce S.A. de C.V. (a local civil works firm). The total contract is valued at approximately $244 million, with Bombardier's share valued at $43 million. The manufacturing, testing and commissioning of the LRVs will take place at Bombardier's facility in Sahagun, Mexico. The new vehicles will be used for a turnkey project expanding Line 2 of the Metrorrey rail system towards the San Nicolas de los Garza and Escobedo counties on a 5.5-mile alignment, of which less than a mile will run underground. Delivery of the new LRVs and the opening of the new extension are both scheduled for the second half of 2007.
