Alstom has been awarded a contract worth approximately $33 million to supply traction systems (including auxiliary systems) and train control monitoring systems (TCMS) for 156 metro cars of the Shanghai line 10 phase 2. The line is expected to start revenue service in 2018.
Line 10 is one of the first driverless metro lines in Shanghai. It includes two phases: phase one, which started revenue service in 2010, is around 23.4 miles long with 31 stations, and phase 2, which will add around 6.2 miles and 6 stations. Alstom supplied the signaling and traction systems, including auxiliary system TCMS for the first phase and was also involved in the design of the metro.
All traction systems and TCMS for phase 2 will be manufactured by Alstom’s local joint venture (JV), Shanghai Alstom Transport Electrical Equipment Co. Ltd., with motors manufactured by another Alstom local JV: Xi’an Alstom Yongji Electric Equipment Co. Alstom Tarbes and Villeurbanne sites in France will provide components. Alstom's Sesto site in Italy, Charleroi in Belgium, and Valenciennes in France will provide software for the traction, auxiliary converter, and TCMS system.
