I nuovi veicoli rappresentano un elemento fondamentale nel programma di NJ TRANSIT per il rinnovo del materiale rotabile
BERLINO - (Marketwire - 1 settembre 2010) - Bombardier Transportation ha annunciato in data odierna di aver ricevuto un ordine per 100 carrozze per pendolari MultiLevel da New Jersey Transit Corporation (NJ TRANSIT). Il valore del contratto è stimato in circa 267 milioni di dollari (210 milioni di euro) e include un'opzione per altre 79 carrozze.
Si tratta della seconda commessa ricevuta da Bombardier da parte di NJ TRANSIT per questo tipo di veicolo. Già nel 2003, Bombardier aveva provveduto alla fornitura di 329 carrozze MultiLevel, attualmente in servizio per NJ TRANSIT.
"We are proud to be a partner with NJ TRANSIT in offering rail transportation as a solution for increasing mobility, reducing congestion, and benefiting the environment and the regional economy. This new or der for our reliable, safe, and comfortable equipment illustrates the confidence NJ TRANSIT places in Bombardier and our products," said Raymond Bachant, President, Bombardier Transportation, North America.
The MultiLevel vehicles feature upper and lower seating levels as well as a spacious intermediate level at each end of the car --- making them truly "multi-level" --- and offer high levels of capacity, comfort and convenience. Each coach has 15 to 30 percent more seating capacity than a typical single-level car, yet is specially designed to meet the infrastructure constraints of certain rail networks, such as those posed by tunnels.
Comfort features include a two-by-two seating configuration that eliminates the middle seat found on many single-level vehicles, specially designed seats with improved lumbar support, and more leg room, knee room and seat width than found in conventional coaches. Large side doors located at the intermediate level provide accessib ility from both high and low level platforms. Bombardier is also providing MultiLevel vehicles for Montreal's commuter rail lines. Specially-configured versions of the MultiLevel vehicles operate in the Atlantic City Express Service between New York City and Atlantic City.
NJ TRANSIT is the largest statewide public transportation system in the United States and an established customer of Bombardier. Over the years, Bombardier has provided hundreds of push-pull commuter coaches and MultiLevel vehicles to NJ TRANSIT. In terms of locomotives, Bombardier has supplied 29 electric locomotives of the type BOMBARDIER ALP-46 and is currently filling orders for 36 ALP-46A electric locomotives, an upgraded version of the original product, as well as 26 ALP-45DP dual-powered locomotives. In addition, Bombardier was a member of the consortium that designed and built NJ TRANSIT's turnkey RiverLINE light rail system between Camden and Trenton, New Jersey and now operates and maintai ns the system under a contract with NJ TRANSIT.
