With over 90,000 miles of track, the rail infrastructure in China forms a hugely important part of the country’s transport system, and is growing fast. China is also home to the longest High Speed Rail (HSR) in the world.

When our Chinese supply partner, Guangzhou Baiyun Electric Equipment Co. Ltd (BYE), won the prestigious Guangzhou Metro project, BRUSH Switchgear was chosen to provide a tailored solution that would be robust, reliable & efficient. Consisting of 593 (NDC) breakers and control electronics, our equipment is the heart of the traction distribution system, providing the safe delivery of electricity to the metro lines.

This phase consists of 5 new lines and the extension of 5 existing lines, however the Guangzhou Metro has future aspirations to double the size of its network by further extending existing lines and providing new lines connecting to existing towns, new developments and new satellite cities as the region develops.
