The Evolution Rail consortium comprises of:
Downer Group – delivery and maintenance lead
The ASX-listed Downer Group is one of Australia’s leading infrastructure services companies. It has delivered rail industry services in Victoria for more than 150 years, and currently, employs more than 4,000 Victorians.
CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles – Design and technology lead.
CRRC is the world’s largest passenger and high speed rolling stock manufacturer. It has built trains for some of the world’s most famous rail networks, including Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and Beijing.
Plenary Group – Commercial and financial lead
A leading independent investor, developer, and manager of public infrastructure with 39 projects worth more than $26 billion across Australia, Canada, and the US.
The new innovative design will incorporate 20 percent more space to reduce crowding and will be longer than existing models. The high-tech trains will feature the latest technology to enable greater safety, comfort, and reliability. This project is expected to move quickly with units delivered for testing by late 2018.
The new trains are part of Victoria’s 10-year Rolling Stock Strategy, which has already seen an investment of over $3 billion in order build new and upgrade older trains and trams.
"This brings enormous benefits to our state, creating 1,100 local jobs and cementing Victoria’s reputation as the nation’s hub for high-skilled manufacturing and a global hub for train building," said Premier Daniel Andrews.
