Infotech renews contract with Bombardier Transportation


New Delhi: Infotech Enterprises has renewed its long-term contract with Bombardier Transportation to continue providing engineering, electronic design and IT- related services. According to analysts the renewed contract is valued at $30 million over three years.

Bombardier Transportation is the rail division of the Bombardier group and the world’s largest company in the rail equipment manufacturing and servicing industry.

The tie-up between Infotech and Bombardier Transportation started in 2003, and now the IT firm supports all Bombardier divisions across multiple technologies and projects in a real-time engineering environment.

The contract includes the Delhi Metro Phase II projects, for which Bombardier will soon start to supply trains.

The original relationship was executed under the Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) framework. The new contract does not have this clause which further demonstrates Bombardier Transportation’s commitment to work with Infotech Enterprises as a long term partner for their engineering outsourcing requirements, Infotech said in a statement.

Bombardier Transportation chief technical officer and vice-president, project management, Josef Doppelbauer said, “together with our long operational manufacturing facility in Vadodara and the opening of a new rolling stock production facility at Savli to deliver the Delhi Metro project, this relationship will continue to further strengthen our engineering competence within our existing Indian operations."
