Wabtec to supply Sound Transit with PTC for $34M

Posted on December 17, 2013

Wabtec Corp. signed a $34 million contract with Sound Transit’s commuter railroad, to design, install, test and commission a Positive Train Control (PTC) system.

Sound Transit’s commuter rail line covers 82 miles and carries nearly three million passengers annually.

Under the contract, Wabtec will provide its Interoperable Electronic Train Management System (I-ETMS) equipment and installation for 16 locomotives and 18 passenger transit cab cars. Wabtec will also provide signal design and communications, mapping and systems integration. The Sound Transit system will be fully interoperable with PTC systems being implemented by Class I railroads.

Several Wabtec divisions are involved in the project: Wabtec Railway Electronics, Wabtec Global Services, Xorail and Bach-Simpson.

“As transit agencies around the U.S. continue to deploy PTC over the next several years, Wabtec has the capabilities to continue to play a significant role,” said Albert J. Neupaver, Wabtec’s chairman/CEO. “To date, we have booked nearly $150 million worth of PTC projects in transit.”
