Bombardier NGR Consortium has won a A$4.4bn ($4.1bn) contract from the Queensland Government for the New Generation Rollingstock Project.

The consortium includes Bombardier Transportation Australia, John Laing, Itochu Corporation and Uberior.

Bombardier will supply 75 6-car electrical multiple units (EMUs), a new depot and provide maintenance for 30 years. The depot design and construction will be subcontracted to Laing O’Rourke.

"The project is the Queensland Government’s largest single investment in trains."

The contract also includes the maintenance of the trains for an extended period of around 30 years, as well as construction and upkeep of a modern, purpose-built maintenance centre.

The first completed train is expected to be tested by 2016, while all trains will be operational by December 2018. Bombardier said its share of the contract is about A$2.9bn ($2.7bn).

The project is the Queensland Government’s largest single investment in trains, and aims to significantly increase the train fleet to meet the rail services demand in south-east Queensland.
