PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A. has awarded Bombardier Transportation-lead consortium the latest turnkey rail signalling contract for the Polish section of the E59 rail corridor. The contract has a total value of PLN 210 million (EUR 53 million), with Bombardier’s share valued at approximately PLN 93 million ( EUR 23 million euro).
Bombardier, in a consortium with Krakowskie Zakłady Automatyki S.A., will deliver its BOMBARDIER INTERFLO 200 mainline solution for the Rawicz to Czempin section, which is the third and final conventional signalling project on the Wroclaw to Poznan line. This line is part of the E59 rail corridor that links the Czech capital of Prague with Copenhagen, Denmark. The contract’s scope also includes the associated power supplies, telecommunications, CCTV and rolling stock detection systems, with final delivery scheduled for June 2020. Bombardier is also implementing this technology for the Wroclaw to Rawicz and Czempin to Poznan sections of the line.
Peter Cedervall, President, Rail Control Solutions, Bombardier Transportation, commented, “This order confirms Bombardier as a key supplier for the E59 line in Poland and adds to our extensive and proven global mainline rail control project portfolio. A further important contract award in this market, it falls in our centenary year of delivering global rail control solutions, which includes nearly 90 years as a leading supplier of Poland’s rail control.”
