Bombardier to supply 36 German locomotives

Posted on December 28, 2010

Bombardier Transportation received an order for the supply of a total of 36 Traxx locomotives from the German leasing company Railpool GmbH (Railpool).

Delivery of the first locomotives is planned for July 2011, with all of the vehicles planned to be in service by November 2013. The contract totals approximately $157 million.

With this new order, Bombardier extends its leading position in the electric locomotive market. Through today, more than 1,450 Traxx locomotives have been sold.

The final assembly of all the new Traxx locomotives for Railpool will take place at the Bombardier's Kassel, Germany site. The carriage bodies will be produced at the Bombardier site in Wroclaw, Poland, and the bogies will be produced at the site in Siegen, Germany. The Mannheim and Hennigsdorf sites in Germany will be responsible for the propulsion and control technology.
