Hitachi targets high-speed rail projects from Texas to Thailand

Japanese group seeks role in 90-minute route linking Houston and Dallas

Hitachi supplied rolling stock to British rail operator LNER. The Japanese company earns almost 60% of its train-related revenue from Europe, but it is looking to expand into other markets.

TOKYO -- Hitachi is looking beyond its high-speed rail stomping grounds of Japan and Europe, as it seeks to join a project connecting Dallas and Houston in the U.S. state of Texas and get involved in work for an airport link around Bangkok.

The Japanese industrial group has met with the Texas government, Alistair Dormer, the executive vice president who oversees the group's rail operations, told Nikkei. The company seeks to win a wide-ranging contract that covers the building of rolling stock and signaling systems in addition to urban development around train stations.
