Bombardier to equip Russia

Posted on July 12, 2012

Bombardier Transportation signed co-operation agreements with Russian rail manufacturer UVZ to jointly develop and sell state-of-the-art metros and trams.

Bombardier and UVZ will jointly develop and market metro trains specifically designed for the challenging requirements of Moscow Metro and other cities in the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Bombardier provides UVZ with a license to manufacture and sell low-floor trams with Bombardier technology in Russia. The licensed product is a variant of the Flexity platform of vehicles operating worldwide, designed for operation mainly on existing networks.

 A total of 3,500 trams and light rail vehicles from Bombardier are on order or operating in nearly 100 cities in more than 20 countries around the globe. These range from 100% low-floor trams and 70% low-floor trams and LRVs to proven dual system solutions.

 “Our agreement to introduce these modern metros and trams to Russia will significantly push the development of this mass transit sector and enhance the image of major Russian cities in the run-up to the 2018 world football championship,” said Oleg Sienko, CEO of UVZ. “Our joint engineering and production will ensure that the world’s leading urban transport is available to Russians and built in Russia.”
