Treasury Commercial group managed the delivery of the New Generation Rollingstock (NGR) project under an availability payment public private partnership (PPP), which was awarded to the Bombardier-led consortium called Qtectic in late 2013. Qtectic comprises Bombardier Transportation, John Laing, Itochu and Aberdeen Infrastructure Investments Limited.
The consortium financed construction of the trains, with the Queensland Government funding the $4.4 billion NGR project over the 32 year contract. The project included:
design, construction and maintenance of 75 new passenger trains
design and construction of a new purpose-built maintenance centre at Wulkuraka, west of Ipswich
procurement of three NGR simulators for training train crew.
“Despite the complexity and scale of the New Generation Rollingstock project, Treasury Commercial group led a rigorous procurement process that enabled Bombardier and its consortia partners to achieve financial close in record time – a testimony to the professionalism of the Treasury Commercial Group team.”
