Global mobility solution provider Bombardier Transportation will continue to make an important contribution to the expansion of Deutsche Bahn's ICE 4 fleet as a Siemens’ partner and supplier. At the end of September, Bombardier signed a contract with Siemens for further cooperation as a supplier for Deutsche Bahn's new order for 18 7-car ICE 4 trains and 50 powered cars. The contract is valued at approximately 198 million euro ($229 million US). Bombardier’s scope represents around one third of the overall project.
The new order is part of a framework agreement for the development and supply of key components for up to 300 ICE 4 high-speed trains for Deutsche Bahn, which was signed with Siemens in 2011. Bombardier is responsible for the exterior design, the production and design of the steel car bodies, the delivery of the trailer bogies and around 30 percent of the final assembly of the entire ICE 4 fleet.
