The final signalling contract for the Polish section of the E59 rail corridor between Wroclaw to Poznan has been awarded to Bombardier by Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A.
The contract has a total value of 53 million euro and Bombardier share is valued at approximately 23 million euro.
The rail technology company will deliver its BOMBARDIER INTERFLO 200 mainline solution for the Rawicz to Czempin section on the Wroclaw to Poznan line. This line is part of the E59 rail corridor that links the Czech capital of Prague with Copenhagen, Denmark. The contract’s scope also includes the associated power supplies, telecommunications, CCTV and rolling stock detection systems, with final delivery scheduled for June 2020.
Peter Cedervall, President, Rail Control Solutions, Bombardier Transportation, commented on the contract win: “This order confirms Bombardier as a key supplier for the E59 line in Poland and adds to our extensive and proven global mainline rail control project portfolio. A further important contract award in this market, it falls in our centenary year of delivering global rail control solutions, which includes nearly 90 years as a leading supplier of Poland’s rail control.”
Bombardier’s Rail Control Solutions (RCS) division is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary in signalling and rail safety.
