Bombardier, Augsburg, Germany to conduct catenary-free pilot

Posted on May 27, 2010

Bombardier Transportation and Germany's Augsburg Transport Authority (Stadtwerke Augsburg Verkehrs GmbH) signed a cooperation agreement to install the contactless and catenary-free Bombardier Primove system for trams as a pilot project in the city of Augsburg.

The Primove system will be installed on a 0.49 mile section of Line 3 to the Augsburg fairground. The pilot project will enable Bombardier to demonstrate the technical capability and electromagnetic compatibility of the Primove solution in the urban environment.

The installation work will start in the summer.

This cooperation agreement is a natural extension of the well-established relationship between Bombardier and the Augsburg Transport Authority. Bombardier already has the contract to supply a fleet of 27 new Bombardier Flexity Outlook vehicles. Delivery of the new trams commenced in 2009 and will continue through to the end of 2010.
