LNVG fleet Passes Milestone

Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation announced today that a Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG) fleet has successfully completed 100-million kilometres of service since starting operation in 2003. The LNVG fleet consists of 37 BOMBARDIER TRAXX locomotives and 220 BOMBARDIER TWINDEXX double-deck coaches. This successful achievement is due to a close partnership between the manufacturer, owner, operator and maintenance provider – setting a new standard for Germany’s public transport. The fleet is owned by LNVG, operated by metronom Eisenbahngesellschaft, and maintained by Bombardier Transportation and its partners Osthannoversche Eisenbahn (OHE) and Eisenbahn und Verkehrsbetriebe Elbe-Weser (evb).

After originally delivering the vehicles in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2010, Bombardier assumed fleet maintenance and achieved an average availability of over 99 percent. According to the terms of a contract extension until 2035 signed in August 2016, Bombardier was officially named as the fleet’s registered keeper as well as the Entity in Charge of Maintenance (ECM) and will ensure a fleet availability of 100 percent in operation.
