A consortium of Bombardier Transportation’s two Chinese joint ventures won a EUR 28 million contract to provide rolling stock, services and signalling for Beijing Capital International Airport’s automated people mover (APM) system.
The contract was awarded to the CRRC Puzhen Bombardier Transportation Systems (PBTS) and Bombardier NUG Signalling Solutions (BNS) consortium. Bombardier owns 50 percent of the shares in both PBTS and BNS.
Under the contract, the consortium will upgrade BCIA’s existing 18 Innovia APM 100 cars and will deliver 9 additional Innovia APM 300 cars, including the Mitrac Train Control and Management System and Mitrac Propulsion equipment, provided by Bombardier NUG Propulsion System.
The consortium between PBTS and BNS will also upgrade the signalling system and other wayside equipment from Bombardier Cityflo 550 to Cityflo 650. The seamless coordination among the three Bombardier Chinese joint ventures will ensure the project’s high-quality and on time delivery.
