This addition of air-conditioning units is part of a long-term upgrade to the MRT3. It is currently only in its fourth month, having started in August.

Since then, there has been a total of 120 brand new ACUs worth P167 million acquired for the MRT3. “Sa kabuuan, 120 brand new ACUs na nagkakahalaga ng halos PhP167-M ang binili ng Sumitomo-MHI-TESP sa ilalim ng komprehensibong rehabilitasyon ng MRT-3,” the MRT management reported.

“Ikinabit ang unang set ng 33 ACUs na binili ng Sumitomo nitong Agosto,” it added.
