Doha Metro enhances urban mobility with Thales

Thales Group has successfully delivered a full suite of solutions on the fully operational Doha Metro that will span across Hamad International Airport, Lusail City, Al Wakra, Education City and the old district.

The initial Preview Service of the first section of Phase 1 of the Doha Metro Project was successfully launched by Qatar Railways Company on 8 May 2019. The second successful preview service was the Gold Line, covering 11 stations, including Ras Bu Abboud, National Museum, Sport City and interchange station, Msheireb. On the 10th December 2019, the Green Line, which runs from Al Mansoura to Al Riffa, entered into revenue service. 

Thales is supplying advanced Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling, communications & security, passenger services, a fully integrated operational control centre as well as automatic fare collection systems including ticket vending machines, access gates and transaction management systems for the Doha Metro. Thales is part of a consortium with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.; Mitsubishi Corporation; Hitachi, Ltd.; and Kinki Sharyo Co., Ltd., that is responsible for delivering the systems package for the Doha Metro.

Thales brings its cutting-edge technology solutions for the Doha Metro project, which will significantly enhance urban mobility and uphold the highest standards of environmental sustainability.

 

“An efficient metro is essential for the commercial success and growth of any great city. Being part of this consortium, at the heart of one of the most ambitious infrastructure development programmes in the world, is a significant achievement for Thales’ operations in the country. Qatar Rail and our partners in the consortium are truly transforming urban mobility in the country. The programme fulfils the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030 and Thales is committed to continue supporting the State of Qatar in its future goals for smart mobility and urban transportation,” said Frederic Sallet, Thales Country Director in Qatar
