The Dubai Metro is an urban rail network inaugurated in 2009 that currently consists of 2 lines (including Route 2020) spanning a total length of 90 kilometers (km), of which the original 75 kilometers was completed by a five-member international consortium led by MHI, under a D&B (Design & Build) contract. The Dubai Metro links Dubai International Airport with the major urban areas and EXPO 2020 site, and as infrastructure indispensable to everyday life the system provides an extremely convenient and diversified means of transport. The Dubai Tram went into operation in 2014 and covers a total of 10.6km linking the rapidly developing Marina district, site of Dubai's major skyscrapers. Users enjoy riding the tram both for its convenience and comfort and also for its beautiful views of the surrounding areas.
Under the newly concluded concession agreement, MHIENG's significant experience in urban railway systems and carriages, and the robust track record of Mitsubishi Corporation for rolling stocks, will join forces with Keolis's expertise in operating public transport networks as a world leader in automated metros and trams with operations in 30 cities worldwide to collaborate with RTA in operation and maintenance. MHIENG has abundant experience coupled with outstanding operating rates, having already provided high-quality operation and maintenance services in countries including the United States, Singapore, Qatar and the Philippines. In the UAE, since 2018 the Company has provided operation and maintenance services for the Automated People Mover (APM) linking the concourses in Dubai International Airport. Through active participation in the UAE's transportation infrastructure projects, going forward MHIENG will continue to contribute to local economic development, enhance regional convenience, and provide solutions to address traffic congestion and other local issues.
Applying its accumulated and well-proven technologies and abundant track record in oversight of EPC projects, MHIENG today is undertaking development of diverse products and systemization of technologies incorporating digital and AI advancements in new areas within the transportation field. Through these endeavors the Company will continue aiming to provide customers with operation and maintenance services of high added value, and will further develop its after-sales service operations, including participation in business concessions.
