Bombardier will supply 19 regional trains with Spanish propulsion to France

BOMBARDIER SPAIN

Bombardier will supply 19 BOMBARDIER OMNEO Premium double-deck trains to the Hauts-de-France region. The Spanish factory in Trápaga will be responsible for the manufacture and supply of the propulsion equipment, whose first units will be delivered in 2022.

These vehicles adapt to the specific needs of the different railway markets and this is one of the reasons why Bombardier’s engineering is present in 50% of the global suburban transport market.

The new trains will operate on the high frequency Paris-Amiens and Paris-San Quintín-Maubeuge / Cambrai lines and will have capacity of 926 seats with lighting, plugs and USB ports, as well as large storage spaces and improved accessibility.

Bombardier is an experienced company in the supply of this type of trains. To date, ten French regions have requested the supply of a total of 401 trains from the OMNEO platform (Regio 2N and OMNEO Premium).

Bombardier Spain, from its Pinto site in Madrid, is also responsible for the supply of the energy measurement equipment for more than 341 electric multiple-units of the OMNEO platform.
