Bombardier Transportation has singed a contract to supply 74 Twindexx Vario double-deck coaches to Israel Railways. The €147m order announced on June 6 is an option on a framework agreement signed in October 2010 and will take ISR’s total fleet of Bombardier double-deck coaches to 586.
The order covers 11 push-pull driving cars for operation with Traxx locomotives and 63 intermediate coaches including 11 accessible for persons with reduced mobility. The control cars feature a driver’s console redesigned to be identical to that in Bombardier’s electric Traxx locomotives.
Deliveries are scheduled to be completed by December 2021. The coaches will be manufactured at Bombardier’s Görlitz and Bautzen sites in Germany, with final assembly taking place locally at the MTR factory in Dimona.
Bombardier Transportation is currently upgrading 293 of ISR’s double-deck coaches at its service depot in Haifa for 160 km/h operation with electric locos.
