Hong Kong/China, 1994-1995

The design of the main traction machinery (electrical and mechanical) of the metro vehicles for the Airport Express Link to Hong Kong’s new Chek Lap Kok Airport as well as for the Lantau Line had been specified by a former consultant according to British standards. For practical reasons however, the manufacturing has been executed according to German and international standards.

The works of LRTC have included the following activities:

  • Evaluation of previously specified standards
  • Identification of equivalent standards
  • Identification of comparable standards
  • Comparision of British with other standards
  • Negotiation with parties involved
  • Proposal of standards to be applied
