Ansaldo STS recently announced two separate contracts for U.S.-based cab signalling projects, totalling approximately $18 million. The scope of the two contracts, one with Bombardier Transportation and the other with Kawasaki Railcar, Inc., are to supply cab signaling for 100 and 364 vehicles, respectively.
Bombardier Transportation will be providing 100 multilevel vehicles to New Jersey Transit, for which Ansaldo STS will provide the cab signalling.
Kawasaki Railcar, Inc., out of Yonkers, NY, is supplying Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) with 364 vehicles, which will have cab signalling from Ansaldo STS. Ansaldo STS’s contract with Kawasaki Railcar covers the base and available option for extra cab sets.
The systems are based on Ansaldo STS’s innovative MicroCab® cab signaling system, which will provide both customers with a complete Automatic Train Control (ATC) system. The ATC system is comprised of Automatic Train Supervision (ATS), Automatic Train Protection (ATP), and Automatic Train Operation (ATO).
