Bombardier Wins Contracts for the First Monorails in Thailand

August 14, 2017 Berlin
Transportation, Press Release

Driverless INNOVIA Monorail 300 system for new mass rapid transit lines in Bangkok will benefit over 400,000 passengers daily and ease congestion


Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation has announced two contracts for its BOMBARDIER INNOVIA Monorail 300 system for two mass rapid transit lines in Bangkok. This will improve the commute for more than 400,000 people – every day. The contracts are with the Northern Bangkok Monorail Co. Ltd. (NBM) and the Eastern Bangkok Monorail Co. Ltd. (EBM), responsible for the turnkey construction and 30-year concession of the new, elevated lines.

Richard Hunter, President of Rail Control Solutions and South East Asia at Bombardier Transportation said, “Bombardier is helping cities across the world address their congestion issues and these iconic monorails will be an important addition to Bangkok’s growing rail network, providing comfortable, quick travel for hundreds of thousands of passengers daily. Our driverless INNOVIA Monorail 300 system offers energy efficiency, sleek design, spacious interiors and inter-car walkthrough for superb comfort and enhanced safety as well as rubber tires for minimised noise and a smooth ride. Also able to handle sharp curves and complex environments, it is well suited to the high-capacity requirements of the Thai capital. Falling in our 20th Anniversary Year in Thailand, it is truly a landmark milestone for our monorail technology to be chosen for these visionary urban development projects in Bangkok.”

Bombardier will design and supply the mechanical & electrical elements for the two monorail lines, and deliver a combined total of 72, four-car INNOVIA Monorail 300 trains (288 cars) equipped with BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 automatic train control technology for driverless operation. The contract with NBM concerns the new 34.5 km Khae Rai-MinBuri (Pink) Line to operate with 42 trainsets. For EBM, scope comprises 30 train sets for the 30.4 km Lat Phrao-Samrong (Yellow) Line. Furthermore, the contracts include providing the project management, systems engineering and integration, testing and commissioning for the new trains and systems.

Operating in the city’s northern and eastern areas, the monorails will integrate with the existing transportation network and run at speeds up to 80 km/h with a maximum capacity of over 28,000 passengers per-hour, per-direction. Backed by over 25 years of experience and over 600 vehicles ordered or operating in six locations worldwide, Bombardier’s INNOVIA Monorail 300 system provides a cost-effective and attractive solution for growing cities. Project delivery, system integration and rail control solution design and implementation will be led from Bombardier’s regional hub in Bangkok. The INNOVIA trainsets will be manufactured at the Bombardier Joint-Venture Puzhen Bombardier Transportation Systems (PBTS) in China, working with Bombardier’s global Monorail Product and Engineering Experts. Since establishing its Bangkok site in 1997, Bombardier has grown its local team to over 450, working on transportation needs for Thailand, Asia Pacific and globally. Bombardier is also committed to the development of Thailand’s future talent and is working with two universities on Railway Engineering Degree programmes.

Actually both, Thai is a phonetic language, so it can be difficult to spell the word in english, but in this case it should be Kan Kheha.

Just a few days after opening Blue line extension from Bangsue to Tao Poon, the number of passengers of Purple Line have been doubled or even more - I can testify for that since I did take a blue line all the way to Tao Poon before changing to Purple line to Nonthaburi Government Complex as the way to go back home.

However, the bone of contention is the ticket price for those who have to make a long travelling from Bang Yai (or Klong Bang Phai) all the way to Silom / Samyan / Hua Lamphong for any reasons though even after the guarantee that the ticket prices would not exceed 70 Baht per trip.

Government wants western extension of Orange Line MRT (Thailand Cultural Center - Talingchan - 16.4 km at 109,342 Million Baht) as 100% private investment with a concession to run the whole route from Minburi to Taling Chan, but this scheme has created the dilemma of ticket subsidization - If Orange line MRT needs heavy subsidies, this will make 100% private investment not different from Government investment on infrastructure but private run on services
http://www.manager.co.th/Business/Vi...=9600000082809

SRTET is desperate for bidding of 7 new set of Airport city line with a price tag of 4400 million Baht since it has a potential to boost the revenue by 70% (!) from the daily rate of 2 million Baht (about 700 million Baht a year) from 130,000 passengers to reach 490 million Baht more yearly revenue within 5 years
https://www.posttoday.com/biz/gov/508885

Platform screen doors for 7 airport link stations at 200 million Baht will get the bidder winner next week hope to sign the contract by the end of September 2017 and done by the end of December 2017
http://www.manager.co.th/UpToDate/Vi...=9600000082886

Bombadier is going to produce 72 sets of Driverless INNOVIA Monorail 300 system (total 288 carraiges) for the Northern Bangkok Monorail Co. Ltd. (NBM - Pink monorail - 42 sets) and the Eastern Bangkok Monorail Co. Ltd. (EBM - yellow monorail - 30 sets) - Driverless INNOVIA Monorail 300 system is using BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 automatic train control technology with capacity to handle 28000 per hour per direction with 80 kph max speed

Bangkok once was a good tram network, but unfortunately the system has closed during notorious anti tram sixties.

So when is it expected to be open? Surely it cannot be 2018 anymore?
