Singapore Technologies Engineering, an integrated engineering group, in association with manufacturing company Siemens has reportedly won a S$18.8 million contract. The contract, as per sources, entails the development of a software system capable of integrating all asset information across the Mass Rapid Transport (MRT) lines of Singapore.

At present the Land Transport Authority of Singapore uses multiple systems to track asset information for individual lines. The LTA reportedly said in a statement that the development of the Rail Enterprise Asset Management System will assist engineers in the improved monitoring of several rail operating assets over their life span as the system will integrate the asset information and maintenance records across the entire rail network.

According to the Singapore Business Review, the Rail Enterprise Asset Management System (REAMS) will use its data analytics capabilities to identify and predict potential faults thus preventing their occurrence as well as monitor asset performance to enable preemptive asset renewal and repair. The LTA declared that REAMS will be instrumental in improving rail reliability and optimizing the life cycle of all assets. REAMS will be first used on the Downtown Line.

The software platform developed by ST Engineering Electronics and Siemens will analyze and store data from the maintenance management system of Downtown Line as well as from across the six systems and 92 trains that are critical to the well-organized operation of the MRT line. The six systems include integrated supervisory control system, power supply system, communications system, signaling system, platform screen doors and trackwork. LTA said that the core functions of REAMS are projected to be operational by the middle of 2020 for the Downtown Line and other lines will be gradually added in phases.

The LTA reportedly said that it has confidence on the consortium which has extended experience with the rail operating environment of Singapore. The LTA further stated that the duo will be able to successfully develop and put REAMS into effect as well as provide efficient long-term support for the system.
