In 2018, we were selected to provide Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services on the newly commissioned 27km Taoyuan City Green Line on the Taoyuan MRT system in Taoyuan City, Taiwan.
The Green Line is the largest ever urban system in Taiwan to request IV&V support.
The new driverless line, also known as the ‘Aerotropolis Line’, will link Taoyuan City to Taiwan’s international airport and connect to the major centres of Zhongli, Bade and Dasi that form an urban corridor with a combined population of almost 750,000 people.
The central section of the 21-station line will be underground with the remainder built on an elevated route.
Ricardo will have a significant involvement throughout the project, providing independent assessments of rolling stock, signalling, track, power supply, stations and maintenance depots through to the route's planned opening in 2025, as well as assessing safety standards for every aspect of the system’s construction.
