GE Transportation is studying a fit for its Tempo CBTC Solution and Interlocking Solution in Hong Kong’s MTR metro infrastructure. MTR Corporation and GE Transportation recently signed an agreement to assess the feasibility of applying GE’s Tempo system to meet MTR’s current and future operating needs. The collaboration began in June 2012 and will continue through May 2014 and includes Tempo CBTC and Interlocking systems, part of GE Transportation’s Tempo Railway Solutions portfolio for mass transit and mainline operators.
“This marks the first collaboration between MTR and GE Transportation,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, President and CEO of GE Transportation. “We believe this effort will be extremely valuable for both of us as we build innovative signaling solutions designed for the future.”
The MTR-GE Transportation trial efforts are part of MTR’s ongoing effort to evaluate new technologies and the associated functionality and their positive impact on the optimal and continuous efficiency of the equipment and systems it deploys.
