Alstom’s Chinese joint venture, Shentong Bombardier (Shanghai) Rail Transit Vehicle Maintenance Co., Ltd. (SHBRT) won a EUR 43.6 million (330 million CNY excl. VAT) contract to provide whole lifecycle maintenance service for the trainsets operating Shanghai Metro Line 12.
Under the contract, SHBRT will adopt the condition-based maintenance regime by deploying the advanced maintenance tools, including its Orbita advanced train monitoring system, Automatic Vehicle Inspection System, etc., to improve the safety, reliability, availability and efficiency of Shanghai’s Line 12 fleet.
The scope of the contract includes preventive maintenance, corrective maintenance, balanced overhauls, safety inspections, train cleaning and train escort services for 204 metro cars. The project is expected to be completed in November 2027.
“Alstom is delighted to be selected by Shanghai Metro to provide whole lifecycle maintenance service for Line 12. We will focus on maintaining our high-performance and are confident that our experienced joint venture team with advanced maintenance tools will provide reliable service and contribute to seamless operations for our customer as well as passengers in Shanghai,” Henry Wang, Managing Director of Alstom China said.
In 2016, SHBRT was awarded the first full fleet metro maintenance contract in China when Shanghai Metro enlisted them to provide 12 years of (on a 6+6 basis) maintenance service for 246 metro cars for Line 12. This latest agreement with Shanghai Metro is a supplementary contract to that initial contract awarded in 2016.
Since its establishment, SHBRT has provided overhaul service for a total of 1,362 metro cars for Shanghai Metro.
All 204 Movia metro cars for the Shanghai Metro Line 12 phase 2 and phase 3 were delivered by another Alstom Chinese Joint Venture, Changchun Alstom Railway Vehicles Company Limited. (CARC, owned 50% by Alstom Group). To date, CARC has supplied 1,548 metro cars to Shanghai Metro across three Shanghai Metro lines.
