First train for Shanghai Metro line 14 completed

The first driverless metro train for Shanghai Metro’s Line 14 has rolled off the assembly line in CRRC Nanjing Puzhen.

With a total length of 38,514 km and 31 stations, Shanghai Metro’s Line 14 will connect Fengbang in the Jiading District in the west to Pudong District’s Jinqiao in the east.

The new trains are fitted with Bombardier’s Mitrac propulsion and control system provided by Bombardier’s Chinese joint venture, Bombardier NUG Propulsion System Co. Ltd. (BNP), under an order placed by Shanghai Shentong Metro Group Co. Ltd. to NUG in 2018. Mitrac propulsion and control equipment, including electric braking and auxiliary power supply systems, is currently being installed all 49 eight-car metro trains for Shanghai Metro’s Line 14.

Jianwei Zhang, President, Bombardier Transportation China, said: “We are very proud to support Shanghai Metro’s Line 14 by equipping metro cars with our Mitrac propulsion equipment and to continuously power the rapid development of the city’s urban mass transit systems. With the reliability, availability and energy efficiency of our Mitrac propulsion technology, we are confident that we can help our customers deliver a more comfortable and reliable travel experience for their passengers.”
