“We are proud to have partnered with ViaQuatro on this landmark project. São Paulo’s Line 4 has been the most innovative metro line in Latin America and our state-of-the-art digitalized technology can provide up to one million passengers per day with an enhanced passenger experience that features increased safety, reliability, and availability,” said Andreas Facco Bonetti, CEO Siemens Mobility Brazil and Region Latin America.
Since 2007, Siemens Mobility has been working with ViaQuatro to install digital signaling solutions, including CBTC-UTO (GoA4 driverless) Trainguard MT, telecommunication on board, train-to-track, interlocking-SICAS, VICOS and SCADA systems. The digitalized system will allow ViaQuatro to safely increase the number of vehicles on Line 4, and the greater frequency of train arrivals will give them the capacity to accommodate more passengers on the system. Additionally, the ability to continuously receive updates on system status will improve operational efficiency, resulting in fewer delays and more up-to-date travel information.
Siemens Mobility has been a technology provider for CCR Mobilidade for many years. This includes recent projects for signaling and electrification of the metropolitan Lines 8 and 9 in São Paulo, as well as advanced technology for two surface Metro Lines (GoA2) in Salvador, Bahia.
The Siemens Mobility CBTC solution Trainguard MT is the most extensively deployed automatic train control system in the world and is used by many operators, including Paris, Beijing, New York, London, Hong Kong, and Buenos Aires.
