The first two completely built-up electric trains for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line has arrived on 30 May 2019 at Westport, Port Klang.
The two train sets were manufactured and assembled in Changwon, Korea by Hyundai-Rotem Company. After completing a series of tests, the trains were loaded onto the vessel MV Genius Star III in Masan, and arrived in Westport after ten days of sea travel.
The train sets comprised of four-motor cars and four trailer-cars, which are the two end cars and the two middle cars of the train sets.
From Westport, the trains will be transported to the MRT Depot in Sungai Buloh, where they will undergo further tests such as the fault-free reliability run.
The arrival of the two completely built-up electric trains and the two train car bodies earlier this year in January makes up 4 train sets that have been delivered this year, while the remaining 45 sets will be shipped in parts to Malaysia, and will be assembled locally by Apex Communications in Rasa, Hulu Selangor.
Upon the full completion of the SSP Line Project, there will be a total of 49 trains serving the alignment.
