Existing monorail set now fitted with new on-board ETCS level 1 computer by Thales. With this, the existing monorail set can also be used later when the new signalling system by Thales comes online in future. New 4 car monorail set that shall arrive soon also equipped with the same on-board computer.

The existing signalling system was supplied by Ansaldo STS.

KLIA-klia2 railway line ready
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2013/09/28
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

KUALA LUMPUR: The 2.2km railway line extension from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) is ready, way ahead of the completion date of the country’s new hybrid airport in May next year.

Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor said only final touch-ups are needed.

“We are now installing the ticketing system at the gates and self-service kiosks,” she told Business Times at a recent railway conference.

The opening date for klia2, which is now a hybrid airport as it will accommodate AirAsia X’s business-class passengers, is May 2 next year.

ERL has a 30-year concession to operate the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit trains between KL Sentral in Brickfields, here, and KLIA.

YTL Corp Bhd, which controls ERL, is extending the railway line from KLIA to klia2 for about RM100 million. Work on the extension started in July 2011.

The ERL station at klia2 will be located at [email protected], the transportation hub-cummall developed by WCT Bhd.

Noormah said the railway line extension will increase ridership by 40 per cent to 7.4 million passengers when klia2 opens.

Business Times reported that YTL is talking to Spanish and Chinese train manufacturers to buy up to four train sets, comprising four coaches each, for RM150 million to serve klia2.

The existing railway line from KL Sentral to KLIA is served by 12 electric high-speed trains.

The trains were acquired from German-based Siemens AG.

CHEAPER OPTION: CAF and Talgo among potential manufacturers, say sources

YTL Corp Bhd is in talks with Spanish manufacturers to buy up to four train sets worth some RM150 million to serve the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2), sources said.

The company has a 30-year concession, held via 50 per cent-owned unit Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL), to operate the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit on the railway line between KL Sentral in Brickfields and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The railway line is currently served by 12 electric high-speed trains. The trains were acquired from German-based Siemens AG.

ERL is extending the railway line to link it to klia2 for about RM100 million.

Business Times understands that YTL is seeking less expensive trains to add to its current fleet and for future growth.

ERL chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor said in May that the railway line extension will increase ridership by 40 per cent to 7.4 million.

"Trains supplied by Siemens cost 30 per cent more than its competitors and YTL wants to keep spending low. It is sourcing for cheaper trains," sources said.

YTL, controlled by Tan Sri Francis Yeoh, plans to acquire between two and four train sets, each comprising four coaches.

The acquisition will be financed with internal funds and bank borrowings, a source said.

The source said key officials from YTL and Noormah were in Spain last week to negotiate contracts with the manufacturers that include CAF and Talgo.

He said several manufacturers in China such as China South Railway have also offered proposals to YTL to buy their trains.

"YTL may buy the trains either from Spain or China. The deal is expected to conclude around October this year. The trains will be delivered in the next 20 months," the source said.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd said recently that klia2 will open in April next year.

The ERL station at klia2 will be located at the [email protected], the transportation hub cum mall.
