Japanese conglomerate Toshiba has won a turnkey order worth JPY2.8bn from the Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation (THSRC) to supply electrical and mechanical systems (E&M) for three new stations.
The order will include passenger announcement systems, passenger information systems, signalling systems, electrification and power systems, as well as the maintenance management information system.
The three new stations are expected to open by the end of 2015 and will be constructed at Miaoli, Changhua and Yunlin on the Taiwan High Speed Rail line (THSR).
With these new stations, the THSR is expected to play an even more central role in vitalising Taiwan’s economy.
Toshiba Social Infrastructure Systems president and CEO Toshio Masaki said: "Toshiba is committed to fully supporting the project and bringing it in on schedule.
"We strongly hope that THSRC will continue to advance its system, and that we can introduce THSR as a successful example of the Shinkansen system to other countries planning to build high speed rail lines."
