200 Diesel Locomotives Roll Into Deutsche Bahn AG
Bombardier Transportation signed a nine-year, US$867 million (€605.6 million) agreement to supply 200 diesel locomotives to a passenger train operator in Germany.
The first US$90 million (€62.9 million) delivery of 20 locomotives to DB Regio AG – a subsidiary of passenger train operator Deutsche Bahn AG – will take place in mid-2013. The TRAXX locomotives, which have four diesel engines, meet the European Union’s new emissions standards by reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, Bombardier said.
Deutsche Bahn AG and its subsidiaries already own and operate a fleet of more than 680 TRAXX locomotives.
Final assembly of the new locomotives will take place in Kassel, Germany. Components for the locomotives will be made in Poland and various locations in Germany, while product development will be completed in Germany and Switzerland.
