Ansaldo Honolulu Joint Venture, a consortium comprising Finmeccanica companies, Ansaldo STS and AnsaldoBreda, signed a contract with HART (Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation) to supply the technology and vehicles for the new driverless metro line for the City of Honolulu.

The contract, worth a total of $1.33 million, is for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the new line for the city of Honolulu, which will have 21 stations.

The design and construction work is scheduled to take eight years, with the first stretch of track being operated and maintained from 2015 onward and the whole line from 2019 to 2029.

This is the 10th project for Ansaldo STS' Transportation Solutions Unit based on the modern metro system with driverless trains and unmanned stations that operates in four Italian cities and six elsewhere in the world.
