Bombardier/EDI joint venture to supply 15 trainsets to Western Australia Government


The Western Australia Government recently awarded a $123 million contract to a Bombardier Transportation/EDI Rail joint venture to supply 15 B-Series three-car electrical multiple unit trains for the city of Perth.

The order is an extension of a contract awarded to the joint venture in 2002 to supply and maintain 31 B-Series trains. Maintenance of the new trains will be incorporated into Bombardier and EDI’s existing contract.

The cars are scheduled to be delivered between 2009 and 2011.
