• Equipped with ATO GoA level 4, the Wuhu Line 1 is the country’s first fully automated and driverless elevated monorail;
• With strong contributions from Alstom’s Chinese joint ventures, new Innovia monorail system ushers in a new era of eco-friendly rail mobility in Wuhu.

At the inaugural event, Party Secretary Shan Xiangqian, Ning Bo, Mayor of Wuhu City, Chairman of CRRC (PPP leader and customer) Sun Yongcai, President Chen Wenjian of China Railway Group Limited (PPP member and customer), and Jianwei Zhang, President of Alstom in China all shared a ceremonial ride on Wuhu’s new monorail.

The first of its kind in China, Wuhu’s new monorail will be elevated and equipped with automatic train operation (ATO) grade of operation 4 (GoA4). The highest level of automation available, GoA4 enables the Innovia monorail to operate fully automated, without driver or attendants.

The Innovia monorail platform, along with a total of 168 cars, was provided by Alstom’s Chinese joint venture CRRC Puzhen Bombardier Transportation Systems Limited (PBTS)[1]. The related Cityflo 650 signalling system that enables the automatic train operation was provided by Bombardier NUG Signalling Solutions Company Limited (BNS)[2], Alstom’s Signalling joint venture in China. Alstom’s joint venture for propulsion in China, Bombardier NUG Propulsion System Co. Ltd. (BNP)[3], provided the Mitrac propulsion equipment for the monorail trains.

“The start of operation marks another milestone for Alstom’s Chinese joint ventures, which remain committed to working alongside our customers. Wuhu’s new fully automated and driverless elevated monorail will be a game changer for residents, decreasing their commute time while also reducing congestion, pollution, and carbon emissions in the city.”
Jianwei Zhang - President of Alstom China

“The start of operation marks another milestone for Alstom’s Chinese joint ventures, which remain committed to working alongside our customers. Wuhu’s new fully automated and driverless elevated monorail will be a game changer for residents, decreasing their commute time while also reducing congestion, pollution, and carbon emissions in the city. It is an important part of Wuhu’s ongoing efforts to redefine its urban transportation to the benefit of its passengers and the environment. As always, we are committed to helping our customers realize their transportation visions by providing safe, smart and green mobility solutions,” said Jianwei Zhang, President of Alstom China.

Last month, over 40,000 people experienced the country’s first fully automated and driverless elevated monorail train firsthand during trial runs. For the start of its commercial operation on November 3, the Innovia monorail will depart from Baimashan Station in the south of the city and end at Baoshun Road station in the north. The 25-station line is 30.46 km long and its tentative operating hours from 06:30-22:00 on weekdays and holidays.

Wuhu Line 1’s new elevated monorail operates at a speed of 80 kilometres per hour and has been equipped with ATO GoA4, the most-advanced and highest level of automatic train operation that enables the train to operate both driverless and fully unattended. To ensure the safe, reliable and efficient operation, the train has also been deeply integrated with key technologies such as track beams, switches and power supply rails. The train’s passenger compartment offers a clear and open view as the entire train passes through the city emitting low noise and vibration. With strong dynamic performance, exceptional climbing ability and a tight turning radius, the train is well adapted to the needs of an urban landscape. In addition to providing citizens with a safe, convenient, and green transportation experience, Wuhu’s Innovia monorail has also become a recognized part of the Wuhu’s modern and picturesque cityscape.

Designed to integrate seamlessly into the urban environment, Alstom’s fully automated and driverless Innovia monorail systems provide an energy-efficient, comfortable, and cost-effective mobility solution, particularly for growing or dense cities. The modern looking and quiet vehicles run on elevated guideways that are built off-site to permit fast assembly with minimal disruption on-site. Alstom offers 30 years of expertise in successful monorail design, build, operations and maintenance, with industry leading availability and safety standards.
