"We have decisively helped develop and shape Bangkok's urban transport system over recent decades. This is the fifth major order we've received for expanding the city's urban transport system," says Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Mobility Division.
Siemens Mobility Division has conceived and completed three high-performance turnkey rail systems for Bangkok to date. In addition to the Blue Line, which has been operating since 2004, Siemens also delivered the Skytrain and the Airport Rail Link. A connection between the Blue Line and the Purple Line was inaugurated today. In 2016, Siemens received the order for 22 four-car metro trains for the city's Green Line. Delivery of the first trains is scheduled for the coming year.
