Bombardier ‘redefines the future of urban transport’

Bombardier Transportation will unveil two of its most recent and major innovations in the field of urban mobility this week at the UITP conference in Dubai; the PrimoveCity e-mobility solution and INNOVIA monorail 300 system.

Bombardier will explain how its PrimoveCity contactless power transfer solution addresses the current range and recharging constraints of all types of electric vehicles, such as trams, buses and cars.

In addition, Bombardier will show how the INNOVIA Monorail 300 system can offer medium to high transport capacities, with cost-effective, short time construction and very low use of premium inner city space.

“Population increase, congestion and pollution are continually growing concerns for many urban centres. Today, no one doubts that urban mobility needs to be emission-free, highly efficient, easy to implement and occupy the least possible urban land space;” André Navarri, President and COO, Bombardier Transportation said.

Bombardier’s PrimoveCity program addresses the range and recharging constraints of electric vehicles and promises to reshape transportation by providing common technology for all forms of electric vehicles, including trams, buses, trucks, taxis and cars.

Having successfully demonstrated the PRIMOVE technology with a Bombardier low floor tram in Augsburg, Germany, Bombardier is now further trialling the technology with partners and stakeholders.

The success of this initiative encouraged Bombardier to launch the PrimoveCity program which will provide easy urban mobility for all types of electric vehicles. This summer tests will also begin with an automobile.

Bombardier is currently executing two high profile orders for the INNOVIA Monorail 300 system: a contract to supply a 3.6-km system for the prestigious King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and a contract to supply a 24-km system for São Paulo, Brazil.

The latter will be the largest and highest capacity monorail system in the world, designed to transport 48,000 pphpd, after the predicted fleet expansion. It will reduce end-to-end travel time from current two hours to just 50 minutes – a real quality of life benefit for up to 500,000 riders daily.
