Hyundai Rotem Co., South Korea’s leading train maker, has won a RM985.6 million (US$242 million or 287.6 billion won) contract to supply unmanned electric trains to Malaysia after it beat German, Czech Republic and Chinese rivals.

The company announced last Friday that it struck a deal to offer a total of 232 train-car units to state-owned Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp).

The trains will run along the 52km-long line from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya under MRT Line 2 that is scheduled to open in 2022.

The rolling stock manufacturer is set to start producing the train units in June with an aim to deliver the first stocks in early 2020 and complete the delivery of the total 232 units by the first half of 2022.

Germany's Siemens AG via its local venture had won in 2014 the contract to supply 58 units of Inspiro driverless metro trains for MRT Line 1. The trains are currently undergoing testing, and the 51km line will commence operation in December 2016 for phase one and by July 2017 for phase two.

Malaysia is a country where Hyundai Rotem has won the largest number of train orders in Asia since it first set foot in the market in 1973. It supplied 1,753 trains to the country, including 66 electric train units in 1995 and 30 semi-high speed train units that run at a speed of 160km per hour in 2008.

Hyundai Rotem has also won a series of supply contracts so far this year from the Philippines, Turkey and the New Zealand. The latest deal is expected to further strengthen its position in Malaysia, said an unnamed official from the company.

Separately, the company says that it also won an open tender launched by state-owned Korea Railroad Corp. (Korail) to deliver 250km per hour class high-speed electric multiple unit (HEMU) trains.

The trains will be supplied for the 300.6km-long Gyeongjeon Line's new branch route connecting Bujeon station in Busan and Masan, a southern coastal city in Korea. The new route is scheduled to open in 2020.
