The Montreal-based company, Bombardier Transportation, has announced it has completed a deal worth $607mn deal and will produce 396 new metro trains in Singapore, Montreal Gazette reports.

On Thursday (26 July), the firm announced that the contract includes the opportunity for a long-term maintenance service which could potentially see the value rise to $881mn.

The new Movia metro cars will operate on Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transit system, which currently serves approximately 1.8mn passengers a day in 61 different stations over 102km of track.

The trains will be on two lines of the system and it is anticipated that once implemented, there will be a total of 672 Movia cars.

The deal is set to be worth US$290mn and the two companies have agreed a five-year contract.

It is hoped that this partnership will enable Bombardier to put a greater emphasis on its core business and help to improve its efficiency.
