Gülermak-YSE Joint Venture, the main contractor, and Thales have won a contract from Çelikler Taahhut to install CBTC on the new 7.5km Line M10, which is being built on the Asian side Istanbul, connecting the Kaynarca district with Sabiha Gokcen International Airport.
Line 10 will run from Pendik via Kaynarca Central and Hastane to the airport. It will connect with Line M4, which is already equipped with SelTrac, via a link from Hastane to Tavsantepe. This will allow through operation from the airport to Kadikoy with a journey time of 46 minutes.
Thales SEC Transportation System (TST), Thales’ joint venture with Shanghai Electric, will install CBTC on the first phase of the new metro Line 4 in Nanchang, China. The first phase of Line 4 will run from Baimashan via the city centre to Yuweizhou. It will be 39.6km long, of which 34.1km will be underground and 5.5km elevated, with 29 stations.
Thales and DaeaTi, Korea, will install CBTC in the Line 2 depot of the Incheon metro in Korea which is being expanded to accommodate six new driverless trains which Woojin, Korea, is supplying. The new trains are needed to cope with an increase in traffic, which has doubled since Line 2 opened in July 2016 from 90,000 to 180,000 passenger per day.
The new trains, which will be delivered in 2021, will be fitted with Thales’ Vehicle On Board Controller (VOBC) under a separate contract with Woojin.
