Bombardier Transportation will equip existing and new rolling stock throughout the world predominantly with Huber & Suhner RADOX® EN and GKW cables. Bombardier Transportation and HUBER+SUHNER have signed a five-year agreement.
The two companies signed their first long-term supply contract as long ago as 2009. “The new agreement confirms our market position as a leading international cable provider for railway technology,” explains Patrick Riederer, Head of the Low Frequency division at HUBER+SUHNER. “Bombardier Transportation will install HUBER+SUHNER cables in the majority of new types of rolling stock and also use them in existing fleets.”
To date, more than 20 Bombardier train types are equipped as standard with power, control and databus cables from HUBER+SUHNER, including the MOVIA metros for Delhi, the INNOVIA Monorail for São Paulo and the TWINDEXX Swiss Express operated by SBB. Supplies to Europe are made from the cable plant in Switzerland. Bombardier’s Asian projects are served by HUBER+SUHNER’s Chinese production facilities.
