Bombardier wins German contract

Posted on April 2, 2013

Bombardier Transportation will deliver 12 Bombardier Twindexx Vario trains for commuter services to Deutsche Bahn AG (DB AG), which won a Europe-wide tender to operate passenger services in the Main-Spessart region of Germany.

The order placed at the end of March 2013 is valued at approximately $145 million and part of a framework agreement signed in December 2008. Under the agreement, DB AG has already ordered 290 variable double-deck coaches for long-distance and regional routes.

The 12 new Twindexx Vario double-deck trains each consist of two motor cars and two intermediate coaches. Their wide kinematic profile and lightweight steel construction provide a spacious interior and generous headroom along the upper deck windows.

The trains will operate between the towns of Bamberg, Würzburg, Aschaffenburg and Frankfurt. Delivery of the trains will begin in the second half of 2015.
