Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation announced today that its Chinese joint venture, CRRC Puzhen Bombardier Transportation Systems Limited (PBTS), has been awarded a contract from Shenzhen Airport Co. Ltd to provide a BOMBARDIER INNOVIA  automated people mover (APM) 300 system to Shenzhen Airport in China. The PBTS joint venture will deliver an Integrated System Package, including 18 cars, for a 2.6 km APM line connecting an airside satellite to Shenzhen Airport's existing Terminal 3. The total contract is valued at approximately 453 million CNY ($70 million US, 61 million euro) with the APM system scheduled to enter service in 2020.

Bombardier owns 50% of the shares in PBTS, which is consolidated by Bombardier Transportation's partner CRRC Nanjing Puzhen Co., Limited.

Jianwei Zhang, President, Bombardier China, said, "The INNOVIA  APM 300 system is one of our leading airport and urban transportation solutions. There are already more than one hundred airports in China and we are confident that, with our cutting-edge technology, strong reliability, availability and punctuality, combined with our sharp focus on passenger safety and comfort, our APM system is the ideal passenger mobility solution for China's fast-growing airports."

Since opening in 2013, Shenzhen airport's Terminal 3 has seen rapid passenger growth, surpassing 45 million passengers by the end of 2017, and is estimated to be moving up to 82 million passengers by 2025. To accommodate this rising demand, Shenzhen has chosen the INNOVIA  APM 300, an innovative APM system representing the very latest in driverless solution technology. Incorporating Bombardier's more than 40 years of experience in automated transit operations across some of the world's busiest airports and urban environments, the INNOVIA  APM offers increased passenger capacity, greater speeds and an aluminium carbody that will continue to meet the ever-increasing industry standards for safety and sustainability.

Bombardier has already supplied APM systems to Beijing Capital International Airport, Shanghai Metro Line 8 and Guangzhou Zhujiangxincheng and is also currently delivering an INNOVIA  APM 300 system for Hong Kong Airport. With this latest contract, Bombardier's APM technology will be in service in China's five largest urban centers.
