The order is an extension of a 2010 framework agreement worth €106million. The trainsets are expected to be delivered from March 2017 to July 2018.

Yossi Daskal, Chief Country Representative and Head of Sales Israel, Bombardier Transportation, said:

“We are proud to continue strengthening our local footprint. Bombardier’s story in Israel continues to be a success due to high performance and the excellent relationship Bombardier has built with ISR over the last decades.

The Israeli government has pledged a €7billion investment in its rail network. In addition to this order, light rail and monorail systems will be developed for several lines.
