Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation is proud to be part of South Africa’s rail evolution by offering the industry’s broadest portfolio of products. After more than five decades of investment in South Africa, Bombardier is committed to covering the country’s complete range of railway needs from vehicles, equipment manufacturing and technology to software and customer service requirements.
Bombardier has already proven itself a key partner to South Africa’s ongoing passenger and freight transportation network modernization. In 2010, Bombardier delivered the first phase of the turnkey Gautrain project which included 48 BOMBARDIER ELECTROSTAR vehicles and the BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 250 signaling system, as well as the ongoing maintenance and services thereof.
Bombardier South Africa is also engaging the African transportation market through job creation, skill transfers, and a strong local supply chain that will ensure a sustainable future for the nation’s industry. This commitment is evident in the state-of-the-art Transnet Locomotives project where Bombardier is delivering 240 BOMBARDIER TRAXX locomotives for the region. Bombardier will also soon be opening its first Propulsion and Controls manufacturing facility in Johannesburg which will produce the BOMBARDIER MITRAC high power propulsion equipment for the TRAXX locomotives.
At AfricaRail 2016, Bombardier will be showcasing its successful Gautrain and TRAXX Africa Locomotive projects, integrated solutions that create substantial benefits for operators, passengers and the environment, as well as our extensive Rail Control and Service / Maintenance solutions.
Meet the Bombardier team at AfricaRail 2016 at Stand B1 in the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg on June 28-29, 2016.
