Together with its consortium partner ST Electronics, Thailand, Siemens was awarded a contract in September 2017 to supply 35 three-car trains, signalling, traction power, Scada, telecommunications, platform screen doors, and depot equipment for the Bang Sue - Tha Phra extension, which is due to open in March 2020 and Hua Lamphong - Lak Song extension, which will be inaugurated in September.

As part of the contract Siemens will also maintain the trains and systems for 10 years.

The trains are being assembled at Siemens’ Simmering plant in Vienna.
