Bombardier Transportation Wins Large Order: Deutsche Bahn signs frame agreement for delivery of up to 450 locomotives

June 18, 2013 Berlin Transportation,  Press Release

  • Delivery of up to 450 locomotives in one frame agreement
  • Contract volume of up to 1.5 billion euro
  • First call-off of 130 locomotives
  • Delivery of vehicles from 2015 until 2023

Bombardier Transportation and Deutsche Bahn AG (DB) have signed a frame contract for the delivery of electric locomotives. The total potential contract value is up to 1.5 billion euro ($2 billion US) and includes options for the call-off of up to 450 locomotives by the year 2020. The first call-off of 110 locomotives for DB Schenker Rail and 20 for DB Regio was exercised on June 17, 2013. Based on the list price, the value of 130 locomotives would be 430 million euro ($573 million US). The frame agreement allows for numerous variations and technical options.

DB’s locomotive fleet already includes more than 700 TRAXX locomotives that have delivered freight and passenger transport successfully for more than 10 years. The locomotives in the frame contract represent a further development of the TRAXX locomotive platform already proven in operation. They fulfil the newest European norms and technical standards.

Thanks to its modular construction and equipment with various country packages, the TRAXX platform concept also enables flexible operation in neighbouring European countries. The locomotives are characterized by low life cycle costs and high energy efficiency.

The locomotives are designed for speeds of up to 160 km/h. On request, they can be equipped with “Last Mile” functionality that allows, for example, freight operation of an electric locomotive on non-electrified routes. This increases the efficiency of rail traffic and makes new logistic concepts possible.
