Hong Kong's longest metro line is managed by the Siemens station system: Siemens contributes to the management of Hong Kong's metro line, one of the world's most densely populated areas.
Hong Kong, the heart of the world economy, is working with Siemens in the management of the metro system. With its 3500 per kilometer square, Hong Kong, the city with the highest population density in the world, stands out with one of the most comprehensive metro networks in Asia. Siemens will supply the IT and communication technologies it needs for the local metro operator MTR for the East - West route of Hong Kong. This system manages and monitors functions such as emergency call points, traction power supply, tunnel ventilation, overhead line fire detection and passenger information systems and escalators.
CG STM station management system, which ensures passenger safety and proper operation of trains, ensures that all information and communication systems in metro stations are continuously monitored. The system is connected directly to the control center, so it can display a priority list of alarms or status reports on the monitors. In the event of an alarm, the pre-programmed instructions will be automatically issued, providing maximum assistance to the operating personnel.
The East-West line of Hong Kong was created by connecting the Western rail line to the Ma On Shan line via the new Shatin - Central Line of the 17 kilometer. The 58 station, which has a total length of approximately 27 kilometers, will take over the longest of Hong Kong's eight subway lines when it is launched in 2018.
Siemens' contribution to rail transport investments in the region is not limited to the Hong Kong subway. Siemens is also working to equip the North - South line of 2020, which is scheduled to be commissioned in 47, from the Chinese border to the Hong Kong island, with control and signaling technologies.
