Siemens Mobility and Turkish consortium partner Bozankaya won a contract to deliver 22 metro trains for the Green Line of Bangkok’s Skytrain system. Siemens Mobility now says all 22 metro trains are with the operator and have started carrying passengers on the Green Line between Kheha Station and Kasetsart University Station.
The delivery consisted of 22 four-car trains. Siemens Mobility provided the bogies, drive and brake systems, auxiliary services and the project management, engineering, design and commissioning of the trains. The trains were manufactured at Bozankaya’s plant in Ankara, Turkey’s capital. Siemens Mobility will now maintain the trains for 16 years.
