Bombardier Transportation and CSR Nanjing Puzhen Co. Ltd (CSR Puzhen) have signed an agreement to create a joint venture to develop and manufacture INNOVIA vehicles for urban and airport transit systems. Rapid urbanization and an increase in air travel have created a fast growing market for urban feeder systems and airport transit solutions in China.
Pierre Attendu, President, Systems division at Bombardier Transportation said: “This agreement demonstrates the firm commitment of both parties to develop a long-term industrial partnership that addresses China’s urgent need for urban and airport transportation.”
Jianwei Zhang, President of Bombardier China said: “We are proud to continue to take an active role in the future of China’s rail industry with CSR Puzhen. Together, we will offer cost-effective, medium-capacity INNOVIA transit solutions that can help China’s cities to meet their public transportation needs efficiently and sustainably.”
