In 2018, PBTS was awarded the contract to provide an Innovia APM 300 system to Shenzhen Airport. The system runs on a 3.2-kilometre line connecting an airside satellite to Terminal 3 and is currently being trialled before entering into full service this November.

Under the terms of the contract, PBTS will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the system, including preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance of vehicles and core electromechanical equipment for five years.

Jianwei Zhang, President of Alstom China, said:

“The Innovia APM 300 system is one of our leading airport and urban transportation solutions. It’s the ideal passenger mobility solution for China’s fast-growing airports, and I’m confident that we will see more Alstom APM systems in other Chinese airports and cities in the near future.

“We appreciate Shenzhen Airport authorities’ trust and support, and our state-of-art solution and experienced service delivery team will ensure that travellers arrive safely, comfortably and with optimal reliability at their destinations.”
