The cars for the last two train sets of the MRT Putrajaya (PY) Line, called Train No TS48 and TS49, rolled out from the Hyundai -Rotem factory in Changwon, South Korea on 17 March 2021.
A flag-off ceremony was held to commemorate this milestone for the MRT PY Line Project.
The ceremony which was conducted virtually saw Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) Leadership Team witnessing the roll out from MRT Corp Headquarters in Kuala Lumpur while Hyundai-Rotem, the manufacturer of the electric trains, was represented by its Changwon Plant Senior Management team at Changwon. Also witnessing the event virtually were representatives from MMC Gamuda, the turnkey contractor.
The rolling out activities began with the cars being moved out from the Platform House to Yard 1 within the factory. At Yard 1, the cars were lifted onto the trucks which then transported the train cars to Masan port where they would eventually be shipped off to Port Klang, Malaysia.
In Malaysia, the train cars will be transported to the train assembly plant in Rasa, Hulu Selangor where they will be assembled to become complete train sets and then tested. These last two train sets are expected to be delivered to the MRT PY Line Serdang Depot in September.
