All the Shinkansen high-speed train lines, many existing railways and private railways throughout Japan rely on Meidensha electrical technology for their safe and reliable operations.
Starting from a national railway project in Indonesia in 1976, Meidensha has supplied electrical equipment for overseas railways in Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai and others. Meidensha continues to support railways that keep running to the future.
Singapore’s MRT, one of the most advanced rail networks that continues to expand even today. Meidensha supplied electrical equipment to the MRT when it first opened in 1987 and is currently supplying electrical equipment to the Thomson Line that is under construction.
Products are made in both Japanese and Singaporean factories and support traction power supply. These products are supplied through this supply chain to overseas railways, especially in Southeast Asia.
Myanmar, a country of significant economic development. Meidensha has helped to electrify about 4kilometer stretch of track along the Yangon River where diesel locomotives used to run until then. This first electric railway of the country started its service in February 2015.
The key to safe and reliable train operation is how equipment operation and maintenance are managed. In addition to supply of its products, it is also a Meidensha’s important mission to pass such engineering skills and expertise down the generations.
The Meidensha overhead catenary system (OCS) inspection system uses photography to inspect the wear and height of overhead lines from the roof of a train. It can catch the conditions of an overhead line that passes by at a maximum speed of 350 kilometers per hour.
Not only is the Meidensha OCS inspection system used in Japan for the Shinkansen and conventional and private railways, but it is also used for Taiwan High Speed Rail. The data collected by the OCS is used to optimize maintenance services and supports the safety of the railway.
