Bombardier to deploy ABB’s latest traction transformers

ABB has won an order from Bombardier Transportation to provide 42 Effilight roof-mounted traction transformers for its TALENT 3 electric multiple unit (EMU) platform.

The order is part of a frame contract to deliver up to 600 traction units for 300 trains by the end of 2024.

The transformers will be installed on 21 trains that will operate between rural and urban areas in Austria’s Vorarlberg region and also connect with neighbouring countries to provide additional passenger capacity and reduce road traffic.
