Siemens to Provide Power to Sound Transit Extensions

Sound Transit in Seattle has entered into a contract with Siemens to supply the power infrastructure for two extensions to Link light rail, the 4.3-mile Northgate and 14-mile East Link lines, scheduled to open in 2021 and 2023 respectively.

Siemens will supply 13 traction power substations, two medium voltage substations and one cross passage tunnel tie station on the two new lines, as well as integrating the additions into the existing infrastructure. It will also upgrade one existing substation supplied by Siemens in 2008.

The new project extends Siemens’ existing technology partnership with Sound Transit, having previously provided the same substation infrastructure on the University Link and South Link lines. The company also will supply 152 new light rail vehicles for the system, built at the company’s Sacramento, CA, manufacturing hub.
