EIB to loan SNCB €600m for Double-Deck Procurement
[Dated: 03 Apr 2017 ]     Country : Belgium

European Investment Bank (EIB) has granted Belgian National Railways (SNCB) a €600m loan to invest in modernising its rolling stock fleet. A further €400m loan was signed at the SNCB headquarters in Brussels following an initial €200m tranche allocated in December 2016. The order will cover part of SNCB’s €1.3bn order for 445 double-deck M7 coaches order that SNCB has placed with a Bombardier-Alstom consortium in 2015.

The order will allow SNCB to hit its target of adding 105,000 more seats to its fleet 2023, and 190000 2030. SNCB has the option to increase its order with Bombardier-Alstom to 1362 coaches at a cost of €3.3bn if it desires. SNCB says the arrival of the M7s will enable it to increase capacity by 145,000 seats.
