153 AZUR metro cars for Montréal

The consortium comprising Bombardier Transportation and Alstom has signed an amendment to the initial acquisition contract of October 2010, concluded with Société de transport de Montréal (STM), for the supply of an additional 153 metro cars (17 nine-car trainsets). These cars will move more riders each day with greater reliability and comfort.

The value of this new order is approximately $448 million CDN ($340 million US, 299 million euro). Bombardier's share is valued at $281 million CDN ($213 million US, 188 million euro), and Alstom's share is valued at $167 million CDN ($127 million US, 112 million euro).

Most of the manufacturing and the total of the final assembly of these additional vehicles will be undertaken at Bombardier’s facility in La Pocatière, in the Bas St-Laurent region of Québec, where the manufacturing of the last trainsets of STM is being completed, according to the agreed schedule. As with the first phase, Alstom’s facility will supply the bogies and the motors, as well as the train control, communication, passenger information and video surveillance systems.

Nearly 170 Bombardier employees will be assigned to this new order, which will also involve 70 employees at the Alstom plant in Sorel-Tracy. With 60% Canadian content, this order will leverage a network of several hundred suppliers across Québec.
