Shanghai Electric (the “Company”) (SEHK: 02727, SSE: 601727) announced that the TSTCBTC®2.0 signaling system had broken the record in a live demonstration by THALES SEC Transport (TST), the joint venture between Shanghai Electric and Thales for the return time of subway trains has broken. The new record in a verified test was 86 seconds, 26 seconds shorter than the average turnaround time of trains running on Shanghai Metro Line 5.
“Although 26 looks like a simple number, it represents a major technological innovation in urban rail transport. The shorter turnaround time allows for higher train frequencies, shorter travel times, and greater stability and safety, making the entire metro system more energy efficient. It doesn’t just meet that Need to increase the operational capacity of urban rail systems that are powered by the ever-increasing number of passengers, it also marks a milestone in TST innovation in CBTC signaling, “said Liu Huiming, CTO of TST.
The TSTCBTC®20 developed by TST is a solution tailored to the needs of the Chinese markets and users, a trouble-free mobile blocking system with high operating efficiency and low costs. It can dramatically increase the density of departures on subway trains and help them travel at the highest speed, maximizing the efficiency of the subway lines.
As the first signaling system with a dual CBTC (Communication Based Train Control) architecture with full redundancy ever deployed in China, TSTCBTC®2.0 has the key advantages of the SelTrac (TM) CBTC signaling system, including real moving block, bidirectional ATP / ATO and the ability to provide flexible operational support, while the high availability and reliability of the unique dual CBTC architecture significantly reduces life cycle costs and facilitates maintenance.
TSTCBTC®2.0 not only meets the highest security standards, but also makes a conventional backup system superfluous and thus eliminates the potential security risks that arise from switching between the various systems. The system certified by Bureau Veritas and TÜV SÜD as well as the China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) has also received the China Urban Rail Certification, making it the first certified CBTC product in China.
The high stability and efficiency of TSTCBTC®2.0 was tested and proven in the operation of metro line 5 in Shanghai. Since its commissioning as a new signaling system for the metro line in 2018, it has contributed to the fact that trains on Shanghai metro line 5 achieve degree of automation 3 (GoA3) without interrupting operations.
Speaking at the demonstration, Liu Huiming said the new record means that the CBTC signaling system and “resource-centric” RET technology represent two major breakthroughs in upgrading and transforming traffic capacity.
Building on its pioneering achievements in urban rail transport development, Shanghai Electric will continue to take bold steps to explore the applications of intelligent trains and the next-generation “resource-oriented” signaling system to improve the safety and efficiency of urban rail transport. Shanghai Electric has set itself the goal of becoming a pioneer in the field of CBTC signaling systems for Chinese public transport and to offer world-leading solutions for improving urban mobility.
