Bombardier Wins Rail Control Signalling Contract in Poland

  • Bombardier to deliver third rail signalling project on the Wroclaw to Poznan section of the E59 corridor

Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation, as consortium lead, has won the latest turnkey rail signalling contract awarded by PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A. for the Polish section of the E59 rail corridor. The contract has a total value of 210 million Polish Zloty (53 million euro, $56 million USD), with Bombardier’s share valued at approximately 93 million Polish Zloty (23 million euro, $25 million US). 

Bombardier, in a consortium with Krakowskie Zakłady Automatyki S.A., will deliver its BOMBARDIER INTERFLO 200 mainline solution for the Rawicz to Czempin section, which is the third and final conventional signalling project on the Wroclaw to Poznan line. This line is part of the E59 rail corridor that links the Czech capital of Prague with Copenhagen, Denmark. The contract’s scope also includes the associated power supplies, telecommunications, CCTV and rolling stock detection systems, with final delivery scheduled for June 2020. Bombardier is also implementing this technology for the Wroclaw to Rawicz and Czempin to Poznan sections of the line.

Peter Cedervall, President, Rail Control Solutions, Bombardier Transportation, commented, “This order confirms Bombardier as a key supplier for the E59 line in Poland and adds to our extensive and proven global mainline rail control project portfolio. A further important contract award in this market, it falls in our centenary year of delivering global rail control solutions, which includes nearly 90 years as a leading supplier of Poland’s rail control.”

The year 2015 is a milestone for Bombardier with its Rail Control Solutions (RCS) division celebrating its 100th anniversary of leadership in signalling and rail safety. Bombardier is committed to shaping the future of rail signalling and has pioneered many innovative and game-changing technologies. This includes the first computer-based interlocking system and the worldwide ERTMS/ETCS-standard balise technology as well as various high speed solutions and communications-based train control systems.
