Bombardier Transportation received an order from the leasing
company, Railpool, for the delivery of 45 double-deck coaches valued at
approximately $101 million (USD). The trains are intended for service on lines
operated by the Danish State Railways (DSB).
The coaches are designed for service speeds of up to approximately
99 mph and will provide a significant increase in carrying capacity. Also, they
are designed to make regional and suburban transport even more attractive and
comfortable for travelers and operators alike.
The car body production and the final assembly, together with project
management, engineering and testing, will be
completed in Gorlitz, Germany. All 45 coaches will be delivered between
September and December 2009.
