BEIJING, Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Hollysys Automation Technologies, Ltd. (Nasdaq: HOLI) ("Hollysys" or the "Company"), a leading provider of automation and control technologies and applications in China, announced today signing a contract of approximately US$ 30.45 million or RMB 201.71 million to supply its 300-350km/h high-speed rail ATPs to the Ministry of Railways of China, which is expected to be delivered between May and November 2011.

The high-speed rail signaling system mainly consists of two products, one is on-board ATP (Automatic Train Protection) which is installed at the front and tail end of each train, the other is ground-based TCC (Train Control Center) stationed along the railway track. TCC collects all the information about the track condition, speed limit, etc., compiles it into a digital file and sends it over to on-board ATP, which generates a driving instruction curve, so that the high-speed rail train knows exactly what is expected in terms of speed, slope or turn before it enters the next radio block. ATP also functions as the last line of defense in safety, as it can trigger emergency break if it detects a danger ahead or potential collision. ATP in combination with TCC provides the crucial control elements in the high-speed railway signaling systems to ensure the safety and reliability of the high-speed railway traffic and operation. There are only four 300-350km/h high-speed rail lines in commercial operation in China today, which are Wuhan-Guangzhou, Zhengzhou-Xi'an, Shanghai-Nanjing, Shanghai-Hangzhou high-speed rail lines, among which Zhengzhou-Xi'an line was commissioned by Hollysys.

Dr. Changli Wang, CEO and Chairman of Hollysys, commented: "We are very pleased of winning the contract of 300-350km/h high-speed rail ATPs. This is the first 300-350km/h high-speed rail signaling contract since our successful commissioning of Zhengzhou-Xi'an line as a pilot project for 300-350km/h segment. The ATPs provided by Hollysys are scheduled to be installed on any type of 300-350km/h high-speed trains for any 300-350km/h high-speed lines in China. This contract win is a testament that Hollysys will continue to play a leading role in China's 300-350km/h high-speed rail market, following our great success in 200-250km/h segment. Hollysys will leverage on this leading position to capture its fair share in China's unprecedented high-speed rail build-out going forward."
