Linxon, an ABB and SNC-Lavalin company, is doing the design supply, install, test and commissioning, complete power supply which includes bulk, auxiliary and traction substations as well as critical power equipment to ensure a vital supply of reliable power for the first of Bangkok’s extensive new monorail transport systems serving the Greater Bangkok area. These projects are part of the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Master Plan, a government initiative to create an urban rail commuter network comprising multiple lines, serving different parts of the city to cater to Bangkok’s burgeoning population which is expected to overtake the 10 million mark by 2030.

The Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) responsible for the new Khae Rai-MinBuri (Pink) and Phrao-Samrong (Yellow) Lines, monorail lines, is working to build a transportation system that will encourage a shift from road transport to urban rail. Once constructed, these lines will ease Bangkok’s road traffic congestion and reduce air pollution.

Linxon is providing a turnkey substation solution including engineering, supply, installation, testing and commissioning in an effort to help millions of Bangkok commuters by easing traffic congestion and significantly reducing pollution by reducing road transport to more sustainable urban rail commuting.
