Wabtec Corp subsidiary Faiveley Transport has been awarded contracts totalling more than US$150m to supply subsystems and maintenance services for 56 double-deck electric multiple-units which the RailConnect NSW consortium of Hyundai Rotem, UGL and Mitsubishi Electric Australia is to supply for NSW TrainLink Intercity services.
Faiveley sites in Australia, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, India and Italy will provide the complete braking systems, HVAC, interior and exterior door systems, driver vigilance units, pantographs and energy monitoring systems for the 512 vehicles. Delivery of the equipment is scheduled to be completed by September 2020, and the contract also includes 15 years of maintenance.
‘This contract further reinforces our leading position in the region and confirms our ability to support our customers globally’, said Wabtec President & CEO Raymond T Betler on November 7. ‘It also represents a great success for Wabtec and Faiveley Transport, with all of our major product lines represented on-board the new trains.’
