54 TWINDEXX coaches to Israel Railways

Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation signed a contract on December 31 to provide 54 additional BOMBARDIER TWINDEXX Vario double-deck coaches to Israel Railways (ISR). This call-off is part of a framework agreement signed in October 2010 and is valued at approximately 104 million euro ($126 million US). Delivery of the new coaches is scheduled to be completed by August 2020.

The new order consists of eleven control cars, eleven intermediate coaches with dedicated space for people with reduced mobility and 32 trailer cars. The control cars will no longer use diesel generators to feed auxiliary systems like air conditioning as the BOMBARDIER TRAXX locomotives that ISR has recently ordered will provide more than enough power for both traction and auxiliaries. Additionally, the driver’s desk in the control car will be re-designed to be identical to the TRAXX electric locomotives’ desk, scheduled to be delivered in 2018 This single-car concept enables ISR to configure the loco-hauled trainsets according to the required capacity. Each of the eight-car trains currently in service feature seating capacity for 1,000 passengers. The popular trainsets, based on a proven platform concept, are in operation across Europe and Israel and compliant with all current safety, comfort and efficiency standards. They represent great strides in helping alleviate congestion in Israel.
