Bombardier receives $120M order for India

Posted on September 6, 2011

Bombardier Transportation received an order for 76 additional Bombardier Movia metro cars from the Delhi Metro Rail Corp. Ltd. The contract is valued at approximately $120 million and is a follow-on to the orders for 114 vehicles announced in mid-2010.

With more high-capacity Movia metro trains in operation, mobility in Delhi is improving on a weekly basis, with passengers getting their travel experience enhanced by less waiting time and more space inside the trains.

The Movia vehicles and Bombardier FLEXX Metro 3000 bogies are manufactured entirely at Bombardier's industrial site in Savli, Vadodara, which is in Gujarat State, India. The site inaugurated in 2008 has proven to be a real impetus to the local economy. To date, 780 new direct positions and more than 3,000 indirect jobs through the local supplier network have been generated.

Delivery will commence in the third quarter of 2012 and is expected to end in early 2013.
