Siemens is to build a new driverless people mover to link the terminals at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand.
The railguided Airval system is due to open in 2020 and will link the main airport terminal with a new terminal building which is currently under construction.
The one-kilometre line will include two stations.
From its factory in Vienna, Siemens will supply six two-car trains. The rubber-tyred fleet will utilise Communication Based Train Control system (CBTC) for automatic train operation and will have a maximum operating speed of 80 km/h.
The Airval system will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is expected to transport up to 3,590 passengers an hour.
In a statement, Sabrina Soussan, chief executive of Siemens Mobility Division, said: “Over recent decades Siemens has played a major role in the development of Bangkok’s urban transport system – from turnkey rail systems to the Skytrain to the Airport Rail Link.
“With our Airval system we will be seamlessly continuing this success story.”
