Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Access MRT System (“Airport Line”) commences commercial operations on March 2, 2017. In January 2006, a consortium formed by Marubeni Corporation (“Marubeni”), Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (“KHI”) and Hitachi, Ltd. (“Hitachi”) won the contract to supply the railway system and construct depots for the Airport Line.

The Airport Line is the first airport link railway in Taiwan with 51km length and 21 stations connecting Taipei City and Zhongli District via Taoyuan International Airport in which more than 40 million people use per year. The Airport Line serves mixed operations of commuter trains and express trains and is expected to shorten travel time for residences along the Airport Line and also to relieve traffic congestion. Passengers can further enjoy the in-town check-in services at Taipei Main Station, which provides convenience to move without heavy luggage.

In this project, Marubeni is responsible for total project coordination, the subsystem of signaling communication system and track work, KHI is responsible for the EMU (Electric Multiple Unit), and Hitachi is responsible for the transformation of electrical energy.

Marubeni, KHI and Hitachi will continue to provide high-quality railway technologies and contribute to improving transportation and environmentally friendly economic development throughout the world.
