OTTAWA, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Bombardier’s rail division concluded a contract with Azerbaijan Railways to upgrade signalling systems of the South Caucasian country’s railway network connecting Europe with Asia.
The deal inked by Azerbaijan Railways and Trans-Signal Rabita consortium led by Bombardier on Wednesday totalled $288 million. Bombardier Transportation’s share of the contract is $203 million. It will supply an Interflo 200 signalling system on the Baku-Boyuk-Kesik section.
“We are proud of our first contract in Azerbaijan, the largest signalling contract ever awarded in the CIS countries,” said Peter Cedervall, president rail control solutions for Bombardier Transportation.
Trans-Signal Rabita consortium will design, manufacture, supply, install, test and commission the signalling systems. The project will complete in 2017.
The Interflo 200 solutions are widely used for busy networks. The technology has already been installed in Russia, Brazil, Thailand and across Europe.
