Shenzhen cancels 1.8 billion yuan deal for BYD electric buses

Question mark hangs over major purchase of 2,919 electric buses from Shenzhen government-owned operator



Mainland electric car manufacturer BYD said the bulk of a 1.8 billion yuan (HK$2 billion) deal that it only just won from a Shenzhen government-owned bus operator last week has been cancelled.

The company said in announcements to the Hong Kong and Shenzhen stock exchanges late on Monday that Shenzhen Western Bus Co. has terminated a procurement plan for 2,228 10-metre long electric buses from its subsidiary BYD Auto Industry.

“Due to capacity adjustment, the procurement plan for 2,919 new energy vehicles (Batch 2) has been changed and the tendering process terminated,” the Shenzhen Transportation Research and Design Institute Co, agent for the purchaser, said in an announcement on its website on Monday.

BYD announced on July 7 that it was the first-ranked winning bidder for the tender worth 1,797 million yuan, excluding national and municipal government allowances. The tender, comprising three batches, included 296 8-metre long electric buses, 2,228 10-metre long electric buses and 395 10-metre long electric buses.

BYD said its subsidiary had participated in the bidding process lawfully and that it “would work actively with the purchaser and relevant departments on the follow-up and determination of the order”. It also said it would make announcements if it receives any update regarding the status of the other two batches of the tender.

Shenzhen has set a target to make its fleet of 16,000 buses all powered by batteries by 2017, according to its mayor Xu Qin. Prior to this change, BYD had managed to win 3.8 billion yuan worth of tenders for a total of 6,775 electric buses – more than BYD’s total sales of electric buses last year – from Shenzhen Western Bus Co and Shenzhen Eastern Bus Co, which are government-owned bus operators in the city. It won a 1.81 billion yuan tender for 3,024 electric buses with Shenzhen Eastern Bus in April.

Neither BYD or Shenzhen Western Bus Co could immediately be reached for comment after office hours on Monday evening.

Controversy over special seats on Shenzhen subway

A trial run of a service designed to offer more comfortable subway travel has instead sparked massive controversies in the southern Chinese metropolis Shenzhen, with some blaming it for creating an artificial divide among passengers[...]

It should be a good ide, Hong Kong has the same. True, it makes most sense for longer journeys, but cramped conditions on metro is one of the major reasons for people opting for driving in cars, even though that is much more expensive and often slower.

I think it may be a good idea to charge for and reserve seats (free for elderly and others with particular needs) as well.

Shenzhen Metro reached a ridership record on July 15, 2015 when 4.15 million people took the metro that day. Average daily ridership currently hovering at 3.9 million and growing as more people are attracted to Line 11. Expect huge ridership gains as Line 7 and 9 open and the Beijing style network effect starts to kick in and ridership of the new lines mature.

Actually they are not. The new R stock for the MTR will operate as 8+1 consist. 8 regular class and 1 first class carriage. But Shenzhen Line 11 has too many first class carriages. it is should be 7+1 not the current 6+2. You don't need 2 first class cars coming every few minutes during rush hour. In the future I hope the extension of the Guangzhou–Dongguan–Shenzhen Intercity Railway to Futian will then free Line 11 from it's Airport Express role.

I've came across the latest planning map, and I've counted 30 (yes, thirty) lines on it! That is 10 more than the previous plan. I remember five years ago they were planning 'only' 16 lines. Anyway, line 20, or the extension of Dongguan line 2, has now started construction.

And the best for the last: Lines 7 and 9 are set for opening on 28 October. Line 7 (formerly known as Xili line) runs from Xili Hu to Tai'an, line 9 (f.k.a. Neihuan line and Meilin line) runs from Weijin to Hongshuwan Nan and is being extended from the latter.

Debut of BYD “SkyRail”

BYD enters urban rail market
14 Oct 2016
CHINA: Bus, car and battery manufacturer BYD unveiled its first monorail at a 4·4 km test track at its headquarters in Shenzhen on October 13.
SkyRail is the result of a five-year 5bn yuan R&D project and is aimed at small and medium sized cities, as well as tourist attractions and central business districts. It offers a capacity of up to 30 000 passengers/h per direction and a maximum speed of 80 km/h.
‘As a rail transport option with relatively small passenger capacity, SkyRail can complement existing public transport systems to create a layered transport system encompassing underground, roadway and elevated elements’, said BYD President Wang Chuanfu.
The first customer for SkyRail is the city of Shantou in Guangdong province, where a 250 km network is planned.

Has the monorail been placed in commercial operation in Shenzhen such that it is possible for passengers to ride it? It looks like it passes by some sort of multi-story cylindrical parking ramp at BYD headquarters.

Funny you should mention that because just today in the Shenzhen Daily, this was announced........

Monorail to link Pingshan, Dapeng
Shenzhen Daily
21st October 2016
Zhang Yang



A monorail testing system in BYD’s plant.  Shenzhen Economic Daily

THE city is planning to build a 60-kilometer monorail from Pingshan High-speed Railway Station to Nan’ao in Dapeng New Area, which will be connected to Metro Line 8 in the future, the Shenzhen Economic Daily reported Thursday.

The monorail, developed by local carmaker BYD, will cover most scenic spots in Dapeng New Area. According to the report, the cost of a monorail project is only one-fifth of a Metro project, and the monorail’s construction period is two-thirds shorter than a Metro line.

As most of the roads on the mountainous Dapeng Peninsula are narrow, the monorail displays its natural advantages in fitting to the geographical environment of Dapeng. With strong climbing ability and small turn radius, the monorail doesn’t occupy roads or produce noise.

The first phase of the project — a 13-kilometer monorail going from Dapeng transport hub to Xinda transport hub — is scheduled to start construction in the near future.



Phase II of Metro Line 8, which will connect Yantian District to Dapeng New Area, will also use monorail technology. The project will start in 2018, and the Metro line is expected to come into operation in 2020.

According to a statement released last week by BYD announcing the launch of its monorail transport system, the company has spent 5 billion yuan (US$742 million) on research and development for the monorail program over the past five years. Vehicles on the monorail system are capable of running at speeds of up to 80 kilometers per hour.
Although the Phase 1 and Phase 2 projects mentioned here do not add up to the headline proposal of connecting Pingshan to Dapeng?

Finally a metro connection to Huanggang border crossing will now be available.

Lines 7, 9 will open at noon
Shenzhen Daily
28th October 2016
Han Ximin




SHENZHEN Metro Lines 7 and 9 will begin service at noon Friday, bringing the city’s total underground rail network to 285 kilometers.

The opening of the 55-km rail line marks the completion of the city’s rail network around a backbone of eight lines. For the first time, Huanggang Checkpoint, Shenzhen Safari Park, the Taoyuancun housing estate and the Bagualing area will have Metro service, benefiting around 100,000 people along the two lines.

Shenzhen Metro Group estimates that the two lines will serve 700,000 passengers a day. The whole network will serve 4.5 million passengers daily, accounting for 40 percent of the riders using the public transport system.

Fare for an end-to-end trip on the 30.5-km Line 7 costs 7 yuan (US$1). Line 7 starts from Xili Lake in Nanshan and ends at Tai’an in Luohu. It has 28 stations including 10 interchange stations, and the whole trip takes 55 minutes. The 25-km Line 9 starts from Hongshuwan in Nanshan and ends at Wenjin in Luohu. The whole trip takes 45 minutes and costs 6 yuan.

During the initial stage, trains will operate at 10-minute intervals between 6:30 a.m. and 11 p.m.

The opening of the two lines moves Shenzhen to third in China in terms of network rail length, behind Beijing and Shanghai.
