Project Description

Glasgow Subway, operated by SPT, is being updated with 17 new driverless trains, that will start functioning in 2021.

The scope of ACYGS services includes the supply, installation, and commissioning of equipment for the maintenance depot, as well as the preparation of project documentation, giving support to STADLER and their collaborator, Hitachi Rail STS, for obtaining the approval of the final client. The equipment supplied is suitable for both, the existing rolling stock as well as the new units.

At present, the supply and installation of all the equipment has been completed, we are now in the last phase, the commissioning. All the equipment, including the lifting systems, the battery charging bench, the storage systems for pieces and the washing equipment, will be in service at the end of this year.
