2017-12-07 - ABB to deliver reliable power for new light rail line - the largest transit infrastructure program in Canadian history.

ABB will provide key components for power distribution for the Eglinton Crosstown project, a new light rail transit line (LRT) in Toronto, Canada, to ensure the safe, reliable operation with almost zero emissions. The project is part of an $8.4 billion investment from the Ontario government to expand public transit in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

The transport of people and goods accounts for roughly one-quarter of the world's energy consumption. Motor vehicles, trains and aircraft that use fossil fuels generate a similar proportion of the world's air pollutants, including greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming as well as carbon monoxide and other hazards to human health.

For an area facing increasing urbanization and population growth, the expansion will triple the length of the rapid transit service, bringing 81 percent of rider's homes within two kilometers of the LRT and decrease greenhouse gas emissions from passenger transportation by 29 percent per person. Launched by Ontario's transportation agency Metrolinx, the project will significantly reduce future emissions for a population expected to reach 9.6 million by 2041.

ABB will deliver a medium-voltage distribution and traction power system, including gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), and substations. ABB's innovative GIS technology reduces the footprint by almost 40 percent and provides a practically maintenance-free solution. Construction on the Eglinton Crosstown line has started and service will begin in 2021.

'Our proven, energy-efficient technology will ensure reliable power to one of the most significant urban transit systems in North America reflecting our commitment to innovation and quality,' said Tarak Mehta, president of ABB's Electrification Products division. 'ABB is dedicated to shaping and accelerating the transformation of mobility.'

ABB will work in partnership with Crosslinx Transit Solutions Constructors (CTSC), a consortium comprised of SNC-Lavalin, ACS-Dragados, EllisDon and Aecon, to deliver the Eglinton Crosstown project.

'We are pleased to have ABB onboard for this project, helping us deliver long-term sustainable transportation and better transit for the Greater Toronto Area,' said Eric Mumm, Transit Systems Director, CTSC.

'Delivering power to a modern, sustainable mass transit system is in line with our vision to power Canada's innovation ecosystem,' says Nathalie Pilon, President of ABB in Canada. 'With a strong history of pioneering technology in this field we are pleased to work with the CTSC on this ground breaking project.'
