Bombardier Transportation has won an order from
the Electric Urban Train System of Guadalajara (SITEUR) to supply
12 Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) of the TEG-15 model, consisting of
two cars each, that will run in Line One of SITEUR in Guadalajara.
The 29.56 metres long
articulated carbon steel trams will run in pairs and are designed
for a maximum capacity of 48 seated passengers and more than 300
standing passengers per vehicle.
The new vehicles will be
mechanically, electrically and pneumatically compatible with
TEG-90 vehicles from SITEUR and will run to a maximum speed of 80 kilometres per hour.
The new LRVs’ design will be based on the
existing fleet of TE-12 vehicles that were previously supplied by
Bombardier to the Electric Transport Services of Mexico City (Servicio
de Transportes Eléctricos del Distrito Federal, STEDF) in 2014,
with a restyled end bonnet design.
“As an innovation driver, Bombardier has
developed many new features on the vehicles in order to improve
the experience for all the people who use the Guadalajara public
transit system every day. As part of the innovations, the trains
will have an On Board Video Recording System (OVRS), new fire and
smoke detection system, Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and
will be accessible to wheelchairs,” said Raymond Bachant,
President, Bombardier Transportation, Americas Division.
The teams of Bombardier Transportation’s facility in Ciudad
Sahagún, State of Hidalgo, are leading the development of the
process, from design and engineering to complete production and
putting the vehicles into service.
The contract is valued at approximately 752
million Mexican pesos (US$44 million).
