CHINA: The first two trams for Zhuhai Line 1 have arrived in the Chinese city from AnsaldoBreda’s Pistoia factory in Italy.

The remaining eight trams will be assembled at CNR Dalian’s factory under a 10-year licensing agreement signed between the two firms in 2012. The five-section Sirio vehicles will be used on the 8·7 km Line 1.

Ansaldo STS is providing its TramWave ground-level power supply under licence to enable catenary-free operation.
