Bombardier Transportation has received a maintenance contract from the Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen mbH (LNVG) in Lower Saxony, Germany for two BOMBARDIER TRAXX locomotives and 34 double-deck intermediate and driving coaches. This order is worth around 19 million euros ($26 million US) and will run until 2022.
The duration of existing maintenance contracts between Bombardier and LNVG have now also been standardized. They will run until 2022, increasing the value of these contracts by approximately 41 million euros ($57 million US).
Altogether, the LNVG fleet, to be maintained by Bombardier Transportation, will consist of 40 TRAXX locomotives and 220 double-deck intermediate and driving coaches.
The fleet will operate in regional transport on various routes in Lower Saxony.
“Bombardier Transportation has done a great job and its high levels of availability and reliability have contributed to passenger satisfaction. Passenger numbers have, as a result, also increased substantially. Our follow-up order is due to this excellent partnership,” said Hans-Joachim Menn, spokesperson for LNVG management.
“This is a great achievement for us. With this order, LNVG is once again showing their trust in Bombardier as a quality manufacturer and service provider,” commented Laurent Troger, President of Bombardier Transportation Services Division.
