Bombardier Transportation has been awarded a $153m modernisation contract by environmentally friendly Swedish freight company Green Cargo.

The project, which Bombardier says is the largest of its kind to be seen in Sweden, includes the life-time extension of assets by 15 years, the ability for multiple-unit operation, enhancement of the driver’s cab, reduction in energy consumption, higher fleet availability and reduced maintenance costs.
Work is set to start this month at Bombardier’s workshops in Sweden and Denmark, with the prototypes scheduled to be delivered later next year. Remaining units will be shipped in the next six years.
