Bombardier to Deliver an Additional 34 Double-deck Coaches to German State of Lower Saxony
Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen places follow-up order
Bombardier Transportation will build 34 additional double-deck coaches for the Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen GmbH (LNVG). The order is worth approximately 46 million euros ($66 million US) and will enhance the LNVG’s current fleet of 186 Bombardier double-deck coaches, in use since 2003.
The vehicles currently on order are double-deck intermediate, high-floor entry coaches with comfortable 2nd class areas in the upper and lower decks. They will have the same functions as the fleet which is already in operation and will be fully compatible with it.
Dr Wolf Gorka, Managing Director of LNVG, said: “The double-deck coaches have really proven themselves and are well accepted by our passengers. We plan to operate the new trains on the lines south of Hamburg in particular. With them, we are reacting to increasing demand and strengthening our current set of coaches.”
Stephan Krenz, Managing Director and Head of Business Unit Germany & Scandinavia Bombardier Transportation, said: “This follow-up order proves our global expertise in the field of modern double-deck coaches. High levels of reliability, flexibility and comfort as well as fast delivery times make our trains stand out and lead to greater acceptance by operators and passengers.”
All the vehicles will be manufactured at the Bombardier site in Görlitz. Over 2,000 double-deck coaches of a comparable type have already been supplied from this site over the last 19 years for use in Germany.
The Bombardier double-deck coaches also operate internationally in suburban and regional transport, for example The Netherlands, Denmark, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Poland, and Israel.
