Bombardier and CSR Puzhen Announce Joint Venture for Monorail and Automated People Mover Projects

  • New deal to bring advanced BOMBARDIER INNOVIA Monorail and INNOVIA Automated People Mover (APM) technologies to China for urban and airport transportation

Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation and CSR Nanjing Puzhen Co. Ltd (CSR Puzhen), two of the world’s largest rail suppliers, have signed an agreement to create a joint venture to develop and manufacture INNOVIA vehicles for urban and airport transit systems. Rapid urbanization and an increase in air travel have created a fast growing market for urban feeder systems and airport transit solutions in China.

Pierre Attendu, President, Systems division at Bombardier Transportation said: “This agreement demonstrates the firm commitment of both parties to develop a long-term industrial partnership that addresses China’s urgent need for urban and airport transportation.”

Jianwei Zhang, President of Bombardier China said: “We are proud to continue to take an active role in the future of China’s rail industry with CSR Puzhen. Together, we will offer cost-effective, medium-capacity INNOVIA transit solutions that can help China’s cities to meet their public transportation needs efficiently and sustainably.”

Bombardier is a global leader in the turnkey transit system segment. Bombardier’s proven INNOVIA APM technology is in operation at 25 locations across the globe, including an urban system in Guangzhou, China as well as at the world’s three busiest airports; Atlanta in the USA, Beijing in China and London Heathrow in the United Kingdom. The new generation INNOVIA Monorail 300 system is the most advanced and desirable monorail system on the market and is currently being delivered in São Paulo, Braziland for the new King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
