ContiTech equips new Shanghai subway lines with air springs

Further seven new lines are scheduled for construction within the next 15 years. ContiTech Railway Engineering, a segment of ContiTech's air spring operations, is involved in the project.

The segment is a supplier for rail vehicle suspension concepts and has equipped almost all the lines of the new metro system with air springs. Nine of the eleven subway lines built so far have been equipped with air springs from ContiTech Railway Engineering, seven of them with ContiTech air spring systems, and two of them with systems marketed under the company's Phoenix brand.

The company supplied air spring systems for Singapore's Metro as early as the mid-1980s which were modified at the beginning of the 1990s in cooperation with Duewag AG.
