Welcome to Design and Projects

The Doha Metro is a rapid transit system currently under construction in Doha, Qatar's capital city. The first line, (Red line), commenced commercial operation on 08 May 2019 and the Green and Gold lines commenced commercial operation in December 2019. It will eventually have four lines with an approximate overall length of 300 km and 100 stations. 3333Capable of reaching 100km/h, the Doha Metro will be one of the fastest driverless trains in the world.

 

In August 2015 MHI awarded D&P a Subcontract to provide the Rolling Stock and Infrastructure Maintenance Equipment for three Depots.  This includes 190-line items of equipment (detailed below) ranging from a small tool kit to a 20 stone Rail Grinder.

PRINCESS Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand opened Bangkok’s Mass Rapid Transit Purple Line on August 6 2016 with an inaugural trip on the 23.5km line from Tao Poon to Khlong Bang Phai station in the district of Bang Yai, where the opening ceremony took place.

 

The Baht 60bn ($US 1.7bn) project was implemented by the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) under a public-private partnership (PPP) scheme, which was financed with a Japanese ODA loan.

 

MRTA awarded a contract in 2013 to Bangkok Metro Public Company (BMCL) for both the provision of the railway systems and operation of the 16-station line.

 

Ch Karnchang, Thailand, which is a shareholder in BMCL with MRTA, was responsible for the civil works while a joint venture of Marubeni and Toshiba was selected for the railway systems package which included rolling stock, power supply systems, signalling and control systems and communication systems.

 

Japan Transport Engineering Company (J-Trec), a subsidiary of East Japan Railway Company (JR East) has supplied a fleet of 21 three-car Sustina trains, which will be maintained by a local JR East subsidiary for the first 10 years of operation.

 

In November 2013 Marubeni/Toshiba Joint Venture awarded D&P a Turnkey Subcontract for the Rolling Stock and Track Maintenance Equipment for the Purple Line in Bangkok. 

 

The following equipment was supplied under this Subcontract

 

1. Underfloor Trainset Lifting System

EMD constructed a state of the art maintenance facility in Doncaster in 2013.  D&P were requested to install two sets of 40 Tonne Jacks together with an Underfloor Wheel Lathe and remote controlled shunter.  The equipment was installed and commissioned in late 2013 and is now operational.  The equipment was previously supplied under the Marmaray Project in 2009/10 and following cancellation of that contract the equipment was shipped back and installed.

State Railway of Thailand awarded a 32·4bn baht contract for E&M works for Bangkok’s Red Line to a consortium of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Hitachi and Sumitomo Corp. 

Hitachi will supply rolling stock and MHI are responsible for track, catenary, power distribution, signalling, communications and Depot Equipment for the Commuter Train (CT) Depot. Sumitomo will act as systems integrator and be responsible for the Long Distance (LD) Depot. 

The elevated suburban rail line is being built in two phases, which meet at Bang Sue in the centre of Bangkok. The 26·4 km Red Line North will run to Rangsit and is being funded by a JICA loan. The 14·6 km Red Line West will connect to Taling Chan and is being funded by the government. Completion is expected in 2020.

MHI awarded D&P the subcontract for the Depot Equipment for the CT Depot in March 2017.  Equipment was delivered in early 2019 and installation commenced in mid-2019.
