Press Releases
Bombardier Awarded Contract to Design and Supply an INNOVIA Monorail System in São Paulo, Brazil

September 27, 2010 — Berlin
Transportation

São PauloMetro selects new generation INNOVIA Monorail 300 system for the Expresso Tiradentes mass transit line to benefit 500,000 daily riders

Bombardier Transportation, together with two consortium partners, announced today that it has won an order to design, supply and install a 24 kilometer BOMBARDIER INNOVIA Monorail 300 system in São Paulo for Companhia do Metropolitano de São Paulo (CMSP / São Paulo Metro). The total value of the contract is 2.46 billion reals (1.07 billion euro, $1.44 billion US) [1]. Bombardier’s share of the design-build contract is 1.40 billion reals (606 million euro, $816 million US) [1].

The new line, known as Expresso Tiradentes, will serve as an extension of the São Paulo Metro Line 2 and will have the capacity to transport 40,000 passengers per hour per direction between the Vila Prudente and Cidade Tiradentes urbanizations. This journey currently takes almost two hours and the new INNOVIA Monorail system will reduce the journey time to approximately 50 minutes, benefiting 500,000 users daily.

The Express Monotrilho Leste Consortium (Eastern Express Monorail Consortium) is lead by the Brazilian civil contractor Queiroz Galvão and incorporates construction firm Construtora OAS and Bombardier as an Electrical and Mechanical (E&M) equipment supplier. Bombardier will design and supply system-wide E&M elements for the 24 km, 17 station INNOVIA Monorail 300 system, including 54 seven-car trains (378 cars) with BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 automatic train control technology for driverless operation as well as providing project management, systems engineering and integration, testing and commissioning for the new trains and signalling.

Engineering, design and testing for the Monorail vehicles will be centered at Bombardier’s site in Kingston, Canada. Manufacturing of the initial cars will be carried out by Bombardier in Pittsburgh, USA, and subsequent cars will be built in Brazil at Bombardier’s plant in Hortolândia. Phase One of the system is expected to open for passenger services by 2014.

Commenting on the announcement, André Navarri, President and COO of Bombardier Transportation, said: “To be selected by São Paulo Metro as the Monorail system supplier for the Expresso Tiradentes project is a great privilege. The introduction of our INNOVIA Monorail 300 system to this great city will increase mobility for citizens, reduce congestion, and benefit the local economy as well as the environment.” He added: “Our investment in local manufacturing is a key element in our project delivery plan and essential for Bombardier’s long-term participation in Brazil’s fast growing railway market.”

Eran Gartner, President Systems Division of Bombardier Transportation, added: “Our new INNOVIA Monorail 300 system for Sao Paulo is a game changer in the industry, as it allows fast construction of high capacity transit lines. With its advanced technology, the new system will dramatically improve the quality of life for thousands of residents by halving their daily commuting time and with its attractive aerodynamic design, the INNOVIA Monorail is set to become an iconic image on the São Paulo skyline.”

Bombardier brings to São Paulo the most extensive transit system experience in the industry and has previously supplied four other fully automated Monorail systems (Tampa, Newark, Jacksonville and Las Vegas in the United States). Bombardier is currently supplying the INNOVIA Monorail 300 system to Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the prestigious new King Abdullah Financial District.

Bombardier Brazil-Bound on Innovia Monorail 300 System

INNOVIA Monorail is the world's first fully automated and driverless, medium capacity urban monorail system. Quiet and streamlined, the monorail fits ideally into mixed-use urban corridors. With space-age composite bodies that are very strong but extremely light, additional benefits include reduced infrastructure impacts, low energy consumption and enhanced system performance.

Unlike other urban monorails, Bombardier's INNOVIA Monorail vehicles do not have heavy rail-type "bogies," which means they never require the bogies to be removed from the frame. This greatly simplifies maintenance by eliminating the need for costly and inefficient vehicle lifts, pits and heavy-duty overhead cranes. In addition, by using a unit repair philosophy similar to that used on jet aircraft, in combination with ease of accessibility for technicians, maintainability is significantly enhanced. The straddle monorail design yields an extremely clean operating environment because the narrow guidebeams do not collect debris.

By far the lightest weight intermediate capacity technology, the monorail trains permit smaller, less obtrusive and easier-to-construct aerial guideway structures. This is the only fully proven urban transit technology that uses slender, 66-cm (26-in.) wide guidebeams, which both guide the vehicle and provide its structural support. The pre-cast, post-tensioned elevated guideway structure is constructed off-site to permit exceptionally quick assembly on location.

The monorail technology incorporates the design and operational features required for rigorous urban line-haul service, including full automation, emergency evacuation walkways, high-speed guideway switching, bi-directional operation and compliance with urban transit safety standards.

Beneath the sleek, space-age monorail styling, standard transit components include:

* energy efficient ac propulsion motors
* redundant high-capacity air-conditioning units
* hard-wearing, high-mileage tires
* heavy-duty transit-type brakes
* safety wheels for load and steering tires
* sophisticated train health-monitoring systems

Looks pretty good and 2014 seems a reasonable date (against the usual estimations given by the government).

I hope the line 17 gets something like that too.

Latest official forecast would put phase one (to Sao Mateus) in 2012 and Cidade Tiradentes (without many intermediate stations) in 2014, all stations by 2015. Let's see.

its funny now that you asked I see there is something that looks like a third rail in those pics, but I guarantee you it's not. I had never noticed. That line is catenary-only, as are all lines from 4 to 12.

This "3rd rail" is used for adjust the train stops at the platform.
