The deal include Bombardier’s propulsion and control package and 12 year maintenance services for the trains and their components.

Most of Bombardier’s manufacturing for the project will take place at its plant in Trapaga, Spain.

The Montreal-based transportation giant has participated in the development of many of the world’s leading high speed rail systems, including four different generations of the TGV in France.
