Bombardier Win LNVG Maintenance Contract

Bombardier Transportation have announced the confirmation that it has received an order from the German regional rail authority, Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen mbH (LNVG). LNVG is responsible for local rail traffic in Germany between Harz Germany and the North Sea. The LNVG maintenance contract relates to the provision of rail vehicle service and maintenance of the authority’s fleet.

Bombardier will also assume the role of registered keeper of 220 Bombardier TWINDEXX Vario double-deck cars, 29 Bombardier TRAXX electric locomotives and eight TRAXX diesel locomotives from LNVG’s vehicle pool, until 2035.

Bombardier’s takeover of the registered keeper role of the vehicles, and the the consequent Entity in Charge of Maintenance (ECM) responsibility, is the first of its kind for Bombardier. For future public rail transport award procedures, LNVG may now deploy vehicles to selected railway companies in full legal compliance.

Hans-Joachim Menn, Chief Executive Officer of LNVG, said:

“The high availability and efficiency of our rail passenger locomotives and double-deck cars is an important prerequisite for passenger satisfaction. We will reach an unparalleled level of availability and this will have a positive impact on ridership.”

Michael Fohrer, President, Locomotives, Light Rail Vehicles and Services, Central and Eastern Europe, Bombardier Transportation, said:

“This truly proves our ability to identify key areas on the value chain where we can provide added value and benefits to our customer. For many years we have been a strong partner to LNVG and the region of Lower Saxony and are proud to once again have been chosen to provide our strong services offering to increase reliability and service in the region.”

LNVG and Bombardier

Bombardier have worked with LNVG since 2003, when LNVG outsourced the maintenance of their fleets to Bombardier when they delivered the first batch of trains. This latest contract between the two entities relating to service and maintenance will cover the whole lifecycle of LNVG’s vehicles. These vehicles have an economic lifespan of approximately 30 years.
