Bombardier VLocity DMU Cars Boost Fleet in Australia
- Repeat order of 40 cars expands high-performing VLocity DMU fleet

BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/12 -- Public Transport Victoria (PTV) has ordered 40 additional Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) cars of the successful VLocity design from rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation. The order is valued at approximately $206 million AUD (166 million euro, $198 million US).

Bombardier will provide 19 additional intermediate cars to convert existing two-car train sets to three-cars sets and supply seven additional new three-car train sets. This will result in a total fleet of 58 three-car Bombardier VLocity trains.

Operated by V/Line Passenger, the VLocity fleet has been in service since 2005 linking regional centres to Melbourne. In that time, the VLocity trains have contributed to a 120 per cent patronage increase thanks to their 160 km/h performance and passenger comfort as well as their class leading levels of reliability and availability. The VLocity DMUs have been designed in Australia and are manufactured at Bombardier's Dandenong site. The trains feature the BOMBARDIER MITRAC control system and Bombardier-built bogies as well as up to 70 per cent local content including the stainless steel carbodies.

"The VLocity fleet has provided excellent service for the people of regional Victoria," said Ian Dobbs, Chief Executive Officer of PTV. He added: "Increasing the fleet will allow greater capacity on our regional network as we get ready for the opening of the Regional Rail Link in 2016."

The Regional Rail Link will create capacity for an extra 23 suburban and 10 regional services during each morning and evening at peak times, allowing an extra 54,000 passenger trips each day.

Dan Osborne, Managing Director, Bombardier Transportation Australia, added: "PTV's decision to purchase more VLocity units further reinforces the excellent performance of the VLocity fleet. These vehicles are designed and built in Australia using local expertise and the local supply chain."

In order to sustain economic growth while ensuring the health and quality of life of citizens, cities the world over are looking for smarter and more environmentally friendly forms of mass transit compared to the historic dependence on individual car transportation. Bombardier Transportation is at the forefront of developing cost-effective technologies that improve total vehicle performance to move more people and goods than ever before efficiently within and between urban centres.
