The company develops and manufactures the Talent 2 trains at its site in Hennigsdorf, Germany.

Bombardier says the units will be equipped with its MITRAC 1000 propulsion and control system.

It says one of the advantages of this system is that it allows the train to accelerate quickly to a constant speed.
