Singapore (Urban Transport News): The consortium of ST Engineering and Siemens Mobility announced yesterday that it has won a $180 million contract to renovate and modernize communications systems for Singapore’s North-South and East-West Lines (NSEWL) and Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT). Covering 75 locations comprising stations, interchanges, on-line substations, depots and control centres, the renovation program will see replacement and up-gradation of the existing communication systems of NSEWL and selected BPLRTs, once the lines start operating more than 20 is the first of its scale. Many years ago.
“The NSEWL and BPLRT are the most frequently used lines in Singapore’s rail network. Together with our partner, we continue to deploy existing systems and new communication systems for train services,” said Chev Mene Leong, President of Urban Solutions at ST Engineering. We provide deep technical and domain expertise to ensure zero disruption down time. Further strengthen our smart metro capabilities, and our global track record to help rail operators leverage advanced technology to solve their mobility challenges does.
“Our combined team leverages proven expertise and track record in communications systems to deliver highly reliable solutions for the prestigious North-South and East-West Lines and Bukit Panjang LRT,” said Michele Obadiah, CEO, Siemens Mobility Asia Pacific.
Acting as the digital backbone of the rail network, communication systems are integral to the smooth operation of rail as they manage and connect the various components and systems in trains and stations. When fully operational in 2029, the new communication system at NSEWL and BPLRT will further improve safety, reliability and efficiency for the rail operator, thereby contributing to a better commuter travel experience.
