Ansaldo STS (STS.MI), through its subsidiary CSEE Transport, has been awarded by the Chinese Ministry of Railways (MOR) a contract to provide the signalling system for a new dedicated passenger line in North- East China.

The contract, which is worth Euro 30 million, refers to the design and supply of the CTCS 2 signalling system (Chinese Train Control System), which will allow the circulation of passenger trains at speeds of up to 300 km/h over a new line 190 km long between Shijiazhuang and Taiyuan. It will also interface with the classic railway network already existing.
