Bombardier Signs Variation Order as Partner and Supplier of Siemens in the Major Deutsche Bahn Project ICx

05:37 EDT Monday, April 08, 2013

BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - April 8, 2013) - Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation announced today that it has signed a variation order to develop and supply important components for the next generation ICx high speed trains for Deutsche Bahn (DB AG) under a framework agreement with Siemens AG signed in May 2011. DB AG recently expanded its original order by an additional 170 coaches. The variation order of March 2013 is worth approximately 336 million euro ($440 million US) to Bombardier in addition to the original order.

Bombardier will supply Siemens with, among other components, all the body shells as well as trailer bogies of the new ICx fleet. Furthermore, Bombardier will carry out the final assembly of all end coaches and of some intermediate coaches.

The steel carbodies for the new high speed trains are optimised in terms of aerodynamics and weight, enabling significant reductions in energy consumption. They are being developed in the Bombardier factory in Hennigsdorf and are being manufactured in Görlitz. Project management takes place at both sites. Hennigsdorf is responsible for the final assembly of all ICx end coaches. Bombardier will also carry out the final assembly of up to two intermediate coaches per train at this site.

The BOMBARDIER FLEXX Eco trailer bogies reduce vehicle weight, energy consumption and noise emission. They are being supplied from the Bombardier site in Siegen. The carbody production of the ICx will start in the summer of 2013, final assembly in spring 2014.
