The MTR South Island Line (SIL) in Hong Kong for which Alstom supplied the signalling system, track works, overhead line electrification, as well as traction and TCMS[1] through three separate contracts[2], entered revenue service today. SIL is the first urban metro line run by Fully Automatic Operation (FAO) in Hong Kong.

SIL will connect the densely populated district of Ap Lei Chau. 7km long, it will extend MTR services from Admiralty Station to the Southern District of Hong Kong Island in 11 minutes via four new stations: Ocean Park, Wong Chuk Hang, Lei Tung and South Horizons.

Alstom supplied to SIL its proven CBTC[3] signalling solution, Urbalis 400, which will enable FAO and enhance rail service with a high level of reliability and more flexibility in train deployment. It also supplied track works and overhead contact systems[4]. In addition, Alstom also supplied OpTONIX traction systems and TCMS[5] for 30 metro cars[6].

Alstom Hong Kong was in charge of the overall management for the three contracts.  Alstom Saint-Ouen site in France, Bangalore site in India and joint venture in China, CASCO, provided support for delivering the signaling system. Alstom Charleroi site in Belgium and Alstom joint venture in China, Shanghai Alstom Transport Electrical Equipment Co. Ltd, supplied traction and TCMS systems. 

Alstom is proud to provide reliable, efficient and sustainable transport solutions for South Island Line in Hong Kong. Being the global leader in sustainable mobility and with its 40 years presence there, Alstom is committed to supporting Hong Kong in becoming smarter and greener, said Ling Fang, Managing Director of China & East Asia, Alstom. 

Alstom has been providing transport solutions in Hong Kong since 1976. It has supplied signaling solutions for six metro lines in Hong Kong. Currently, Alstom and its consortium partner, Thales, are renovating the signaling system of six MTR lines and the Airport Express over a period of 10 years. Other Hong Kong metro contracts executed by Alstom include Kwun Tong Line extension, which entered revenue service in October 2016 and Shatin Central Link phase one (ongoing).
