Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded a contract to a consortium of ST Engineering Electronics and Siemens to develop and implement a railway asset management and monitoring system.
The scope of the S$18.8m ($13.71m) contract includes the development of Rail Enterprise Asset Management System (REAMS).
REAMS will procure and integrate railway asset information and maintenance records across the entire system to enable monitoring throughout their respective lifecycles.
The system will also be equipped with data analytics capabilities to detect potential faults in the systems beforehand and initiate pre-emptive renovations or replacements.
The implementation of the new system, which is scheduled to start with the Downtown Line (DTL), is expected to improve the overall railway service reliability as well as optimise overall lifecycle costs.
For the 41.9km-long DTL, the ST Engineering Electronics-Siemens consortium will provide a software platform that will process data from its 92-train fleet, maintenance management system and all its associated systems necessary for its smooth functioning.

DFL’s associated systems include power supply, communications and signalling systems, as well as integrated supervisory control system, track work and platform screen doors.
All the key functions of REAMS on the line are expected to be operational by mid-2020.
The implementation of the system on the other lines will be carried out in subsequent phases.
Last month, LTA awarded an $880m contract to Bombardier to supply 66 new six-car trains that will operate on the North-South and East-West Lines.
To be manufactured and assembled at Bombardier’s Chinese facility in Changchun, the trains will be delivered in batches starting 2021.
