Bombardier Transportation: Bombardier's Joint Venture Wins Contract to Build 15 Very High Speed Trains for China

* To date, the joint venture has delivered over 3,000 rail passenger cars to
China, two-thirds of which have been for high speed trains

BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2015) - Rail technology leader
Bombardier Transportation announced today that its Chinese joint venture,
Bombardier Sifang (Qingdao) Transportation Ltd. (BST), has been awarded a
contract with China Railway Corp. (CRC) to supply 15 CRH380D very high speed
trains for the country's rapidly growing high speed network. The contract for
15 eight-car trainsets is valued at approximately 2.4 billion Chinese RMBs ($
381 million US, 339 million euro).

Bombardier owns 50% of the shares in BST, which is consolidated by Bombardier
Transportation's partner CSR Sifang Rolling Stock Co., Ltd. Based on previous
orders, BST started delivering its newest generation high speed train CRH380D
in the first quarter of 2015. This early follow on order shows the confidence
of China Railways in BST's leading high tech product.

Jianwei Zhang, President of Bombardier China said, "China now has the world's
longest operational track mileage and largest number of high speed trains.
This market represents a tremendous opportunity where we have been successful
by offering innovative and highly reliable products. Bombardier is very proud
to be involved in China's new high speed railway age by delivering leading
edge, very high speed rail equipment through Chinese joint venture expertise
and resources. We are confident to deliver more next-generation rail
equipment with the most advanced rail technology for China from within
China."

The new trainsets will be an integral part of an evolving high speed rail
capability in China. With a maximum operating speed of 380 km/h, the CRH380D
is a new generation high speed electric multiple units developed by BST. It
is powered byBOMBARDIER
ECO4 technology and a highly efficientBOMBARDIER MITRAC
propulsion and control system, both supplied by a separate Bombardier Chinese
joint venture, Bombardier CPC Propulsion System Co., Ltd. (BCP).

The CRH380D EMU consists of eight aluminum carbody cars and is equipped with
VIP seats, first class seats, second class seats and a dining car. The
trainsets will be manufactured at Bombardier Sifang (Qingdao) Transportation
production facilities in Qingdao, China. Engineering will take place in
Qingdao and at Bombardier centers in Europe with project management and
components provided from sites in Europe and China.
