The Airval system is a central railguided Automated People Mover distinguished by short headways fast acceleration and short braking phases. With their rubber tires, the Airval trains can easily handle steeper grades and are considerably quieter than other rail systems in curves. Innovative energy storage and energy recovery systems ensure the system's high efficiency.
The Airval trains being built for Bangkok will transport up to 3,590 passengers per hour and direction during peak periods. Operation will be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to deal with fluctuating demand. Large doors and spacious aisles ease boarding and exiting, and provide generous space for luggage.
"Over recent decades Siemens has played a major role in the development of Bangkok's urban transport system – from turnkey rail systems to the Skytrain to the Airport Rail Link. With our Airval system we will be seamlessly continuing this success story", said Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility Division.
Val systems made by Siemens are already operating at the Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airports in Paris as well as at the O'Hare Airport in Chicago. The Val fully automated systems also operate as metro lines, in French cities such as Lille, Rennes and Toulouse, in the South Korean City Uijeongbu and in Turin, Italy. Availability level of the Val lines in operation is over 99,8 percent.
