Thales will design, develop, and supply the moving-block system, and
provide commissioning support to the Korean E&M consortium, which
has the turnkey contract to build the line.
Construction began
last year on the 30.2km Line 2, which will link Oyru Dong with Incheon
City Hall, Geomam Station and Incheon Grand Park. Hyundai-Rotem, Korea,
will supply a fleet of 37 trains, which will run in driverless
Unattended Train Operation (UTO) mode with 120-second headways.
27-station line will open in time for the 2014 Asian Games, which will
be held in Incheon during September and October of that year.
