Published on : Saturday, December 31, 2016

bombardierRail technology leader Bombardier Transportation and partner Hartasuma today announced the launch of the latest INNOVIA Metro 300 train in the Asia Pacific region.

 

The new train enters service on the extended Kelana Jaya Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line and will provide comfortable, fast and eco-friendly travel for passengers in the vibrant metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

 

 

“This new train is the first of 14 INNOVIA Metro 300 trains ordered by Prasarana to expand the fleets on the Kelana Jaya Line. The vehicles will boost the rail network’s capacity by 30% once fully delivered,” said Jayaram Naidu, Head of Sales and Marketing for South East Asia at Bombardier Transportation. “This will greatly enhance public transport connectivity in the growing city of Kuala Lumpur, supporting the government’s vision of an integrated urban mass rapid transit system. Bombardier’s INNOVIA Metro 300 platform is built on a proven track record of safe operation, service dependability and low operating costs, an ideal modern solution to any urban transportation network in Asia.”

 

 

Designed for driverless operation, the vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art Linear Induction Motor (LIM) propulsion technology which allows for operation on tighter curves, with less noise and greatly reduced wheel and track wear. Low energy consumption is achieved thanks to the combination of lightweight aluminium carshells and LIM propulsion system and in addition, highly effective regenerative braking enables the reuse of energy released during braking.

 

 

All INNOVIA Metro 300 cars are equipped with onboard camera systems, infotainment LCD screens and dynamic route maps to provide accurate travel information. The four-car trains have wide aisles and walk-through gangways which allow passengers to move freely throughout the train.

 

 

Bombardier continues to be innovative in its approach to advanced rapid transit technology which has proven to be an effective solution moving 150 million passengers every year in dynamic and progressive cities. In addition to Asia, Bombardier also has contracts to provide INNOVIA Metro 300 trains for the Vancouver Sky Train system in Canada and for the Riyadh Metro’s Orange Line in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
