Under the agreement, TISS will supply replacement electric equipment for 30 Series 700T trainsets operated by the Taiwan High Speed Rail.

To be manufactured at the company’s Fuchu facility in Japan, the delivery of the equipment will start in the first of 2021.

TISS received the order to supply electric equipment for rolling stock, substation systems, train traffic control systems, communication systems and maintenance management systems.

In 2012, TISS, together with Kawasaki Heavy Industries, won an order for four trains consisting 48 cars.
