The FINANCIAL — Bombardier Transportation announced that Bangkok Mass Transit System Public Co. Ltd. (BTSC) is the previously undisclosed customer that signed a contract for 20 years of maintenance services.
The services will be provided for the BOMBARDIER INNOVIA monorail 300 systems in delivery for Thailand’s first two monorail lines: the Bangkok pink and yellow lines. The order was announced by Bombardier on July 6, 2018 and is valued at approximately 245 million euro ($287 million US).
This latest contract will see Bombardier maintain the monorail trains, comprising 288-cars, as well as the system’s guideway switches and depot equipment. In 2017, Bombardier signed the contracts to deliver its full turnkey INNOVIA monorail 300 systems for Bangkok’s Khae Rai to MinBuri (pink) line and Lat Phrao to Samrong (yellow) line.
Bombardier is one of the few mobility solution providers to deliver projects from Thailand for Thailand, including its rail control solutions for Bangkok’s mass transit lines. Since 1997, Bombardier has continued to grow its Bangkok team to over 620 highly-skilled engineers and employees, providing full life-cycle rail system support for customers across Asia Pacific.
