A consortium of Bombardier Transportation and its local consortium partner PT INKA has received a €66m contract to supply ten six-car electric multiple-units (EMUs) for the planned Jakarta airport rail link.
The contract was awarded by The PT Raillink joint venture, and established by both Indonesian railway operator PT Kereta Api and national airport operator PT Angkas Pura II. It includes two years of fleet maintenance.
Bombardier’s share is valued at €15m. The company will supply the Mitrac propulsion system for use in the new trains, as well as offer engineering, procurement and quality management support to PT INKA. It will also supply equipment and deliver it to the Indonesian vehicle manufacturer for final vehicle integration.
Bombardier Transportation South East Asia’s head of the Asia-Pacific region Jayaram Naidu said: "We are very proud to be part of this local project to improve the connection between Indonesia’s main airport and its rapidly growing capital. As always, Bombardier is committed to delivering high-quality on time to PT Railink."
The Mitrac propulsion equipment is already in use in more than 37,000 railway vehicles worldwide.
The trains will run on a newly built line that links Soekarno-Hatta International Airport’s new Terminal 3 with Batu Ceper Station in Tangerang, a suburb of Jakarta. It will further connect the airport with existing commuter railway networks.
In Indonesia, Bombardier is also carrying out the fully automated Interflo 150 train control solution that is being delivered to Grasberg Block Cave mine in the Papua province of Indonesia.
