Bombardier wins Swedish railcar order

Posted on June 6, 2013

Bombardier Transportation won an order from SL, the Stockholm Public Transport Authority, to deliver the new generation C30 metro fleet for Stockholm, Sweden, with a contract to provide 96 Movia metro vehicles.

The contract includes an option for up to 80 further vehicles. The firm order is valued at approximately $771 million.

Based on the highly successful Movia metro platform, which Bombardier has delivered to major cities worldwide from New York to London to Singapore, the new high-technology Movia C30 metros have been customized to meet the specific requirements of SL for high availability, accessibility, reliability and passenger comfort.

The new fleet will run on the Red Line connecting Stockholm's north-eastern and south-western suburbs directly with the city center. The four-car vehicles, fitted with a driver's cab at each end, are also equipped with advanced driverless functionality.

The new air-conditioned Movia C30 metros offer improved access for passengers with restricted mobility. The vehicles feature advanced passenger information systems and fulfill the highest environmental standards regarding energy consumption and choice of almost entirely recyclable materials.

Delivery is scheduled to start in November 2016 with the start of traffic scheduled in early 2017.
