Bombardier Transportation Australia has been named as the preferred partner for the supply maintenance of 66 new electric railcars, for operation on the electrified Adelaide suburban rail network. These new electric trains will be quieter, cheaper to operate, require less maintenance and offer improved reliability over the existing diesel fleet. The new trains will have a top speed of 110kmh with faster acceleration and deceleration and performance that leads to significant power savings. They will feature an array of on-board technology including Smartcard ticketing capability and CCTV while also being fully disability accessible. They will also be designed to meet Adelaide’s extreme heat demands both in operation and in customer air-conditioning.
