Alstom has been awarded a contract worth €46 million by Shanghai Shentong to modernise 68 metro cars in service on the Shanghai metro line 5 and to supply traction and train control management systems for 198 new metro cars due to circulate on the existing line and its extension, expected to open by the end of 2017.

Shanghai’s metro line 5, which was opened in 2003, is 17.2 km long and includes 11 stations. The extension will add 16.6 km and 9 stations, providing more fluidity to the line which is particularly dense between Fengxian District[1] and Minhang District[2].

Alstom will modernise the 68 metro cars that it supplied in 2003 with its Chinese joint venture SATCO (Shanghai Alstom Transport Co. Ltd.). The modernisation will increase the reliability of the cars and adapt them to a new signalling system that will be implemented on the line.

Alstom will supply traction systems for 198 new cars[3] that have been ordered for the line and its extension. All traction drives will be manufactured by Alstom’s joint venture SATEE (Shanghai Alstom Transport Electrical Equipment Co. Ltd.).
