Bombardier Transportation has been selected as the preferred bidder to deliver a multibillion-euro monorail system in the Egyptian capital of Cairo.
The company will deliver project works in a partnership with two Egyptian firms, Orascom Construction and the Arab Contractors.
The monorail system will connect East Cairo and the New Administrative City. It will stretch 54km.
A second line connecting 6 October City and Giza will stretch to 42km.
Bombardier’s potential share in the design and build contract is €1.2bn ($1.3bn), while the operations and maintenance deal carries a potential value of €1.1bn ($1.2bn).
The preferred consortium will be responsible for operations and maintenance of the monorail system for 15 years, with the option for an additional 15 years.
Bombardier‘s facility in Derby, UK, will be used to manufacture the rolling stock as part of the order.
The announcement comes four years after Bombardier announced that the consortium is in discussions with the Egyptian government to deliver the monorail system.
Headquartered in Berlin, Germany, Bombardier Transportation is a global mobility solution provider. Its portfolio includes trains, sub-systems, signalling, e-mobility technology and data-driven maintenance services.
Last month, the company secured a $255m contract from the Queensland Government in Australia to deliver modifications to the New Generation Rollingstock (NGR) trains.
The scope of the contract requires Bombardier to offer design and delivery, as well as on-going maintenance for the trains.
Bombardier Transportation employs around 40,650 people and operates in more than 60 countries.
