Shanghai Shentong Metro has awarded a CNY808m ($130m) contract to CSR Puzhen Bombardier Transportation Systems joint venture to deliver Innovia APM 300 automated people mover (APM) system.

Of the total value of the contract, Bombardier’s direct share is valued at approximately CNY89m ($14m).

The 50-50 joint venture is controlled by Bombardier’s partner CSR Nanjing Puzhen.

The new urban APM system will extend Shanghai Metro Line 8 to Shanghai’s Pujiangzhen district.

The new 6.6km dual-lane elevated line with six stations will serve as an extension to the existing Shanghai Metro Line 8 and will connect the terminal station of Shendu Highway with the large residential district of Pujiangzhen.

"Bombardier’s growing success is based on consistent market focus and an innovative product portfolio that is well-suited to the country’s vibrant transit sector."

Bombardier China president Dr Jianwei Zhang said: "Bombardier’s growing success is based on consistent market focus and an innovative product portfolio that is well-suited to the country’s vibrant transit sector.

"We offer one of the world’s broadest product portfolios, which is demonstrated by the scope of contracts we have for high-speed trains, locomotives, propulsion equipment, commuter trains, automated transit systems, metro cars, signalling systems and other products. China is a priority market, and our focus continues to show results."

The extension is scheduled to be opened in December 2017.

Under the deal, the joint venture will be responsible to supply the electric and mechanical (E&M) scope for the turnkey system.

The scope of work will also include delivery of 44 Innovia APM 300 vehicles, the Bombardier Cityflo 650 communications-based train control (CBTC) system, as well as the operations control centre.

The 44 Innovia APM 300 vehicles will be built in China, configured into 11 four-car trains and feature inter-car gangways.
