Bombardier receives order as Siemens’ partner and supplier
In the expansion of Deutsche Bahn’s ICE 4 fleet, Bombardier’s scope represents approximately one third of the project as a whole.
At the end of September 2018, Bombardier signed a contract with Siemens for further cooperation as a supplier for Deutsche Bahn’s new order for 18 seven-car ICE 4 trains and 50 powered cars. The contract is valued at approximately €198 million.
Bombardier’s scope represents around one third of the overall project.
The new order is part of a framework agreement for the development and supply of key components for up to 300 ICE 4 high-speed trains for Deutsche Bahn, which was signed with Siemens in 2011.
Bombardier is responsible for the exterior design, the production and design of the steel car bodies, the delivery of the trailer bogies and approximately 30 per cent of the final assembly of the entire ICE 4 fleet.
“The ICE 4 is the flagship of Deutsche Bahn and a perfect example of modern rail transport. We are proud to be part of this prestigious project,” said Laurent Troger, President of Bombardier Transportation. “The aim is to jointly provide the right mobility solutions for safe, comfortable and efficient long-distance transport in Germany. Our innovative high-technology components and our manufacturing expertise make an important contribution to the success of this project.”
