MHI Receives 10-Year Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Renewal and Extension Contract for AeroTrain Automated People Mover (APM) system at Washington Dulles International Airport in the United States
Tokyo, December 2, 2014 - Crystal Mover Services, Inc. (CMS), a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) based in Miami, Florida, has concluded an agreement with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) renewing and extending Operations and Maintenance (O&M) services for the AeroTrain Automated People Mover (APM) delivered to the Washington Dulles International Airport in December 2009. The renewal and extension agreement covers a period of ten years commencing in December 2014, with the contract value totaling US$136 million (approx. 14.3 billion yen).
CMS is currently performing O&M services for all APM systems delivered by MHI to the United States. CMS's capitalization derives from two sources: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. (MHIA), an MHI group company based in New York City, and Sumitomo Corporation. Within the United States, MHI provides comprehensive services – from system supply to O&M - for its APMs in operation at airports in Miami, Washington/Dulles and Atlanta. This fully integrated capability enables consistently high service availability levels and outstanding customer trust at all sites. In recognition of this superlative track record, during 2014 MHI won contracts for construction and O&M of new APM systems at both Orlando international Airport and Tampa International Airport.
Going forward, MHI will continue to strive to attract further orders based on the reliability of its APM systems already in operation, coupled with its capacity to provide the complete spectrum of services from construction to O&M.
