Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation and ST Engineering’s Land Systems arm are proud to announce a new strategic partnership to build a Singapore Service Centre. As part of the partnership agreement, Bombardier and ST Engineering will combine their respective strengths in transportation design, manufacturing, engineering knowledge, maintenance, repair and overhaul expertise to drive cost-effective localized component repair capabilities for customers in Singapore, as well as regionally. These measures will improve the overall Service offering for Bombardier customers while strengthening its portfolio and providing customers greater options in support of their operations.
Mr. Tan Peng Kuan, President of Commercial Business, ST Engineering’s Land Systems arm, said “The Singapore Service Centre is a step towards strengthening Singapore’s capability in rail maintenance and support services, and is testament to ST Engineering’s deep engineering capabilities. ST Engineering’s advanced diagnostics and maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) expertise not only ensures that there is reliable in-country support for transport operators in Singapore, our complementary capabilities in robotics and simulation systems also offer innovation engineering applications for improving efficiency and reliability to rail operations.”
Commenting on the partnership, Jayaram Naidu, Vice President of Southeast Asia, Bombardier Transportation, said, “We are pleased to expand our presence and deepen our investment in Singapore with this state-of-the-art center which will help us to develop and deliver our services capabilities. This new service centre reflects our commitment to developing local talent and technical skills, key to constantly innovating and improving the solutions we provide. We understand the importance that our customers place on passenger safety and system performance, and we will further add value by improving total train performance for operators moving millions of passengers safely.”
Over the last 20 years in Singapore, Bombardier has made significant contributions to improving mobility in Singapore. To date, it has delivered 276 driverless BOMBARDIER MOVIA metro cars for Singapore’s Downtown Line and 13 BOBMARDIER INNOVIA APM 100 automated people mover cars for the Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit (LRT) system. Earlier this year, a new asset replacement contract was awarded to supply 19 new BOMBARDIER INNOVIA APM 300 cars, to retrofit 13 existing APM 100 cars, as well as to deliver a signalling system upgrade for 13 stops on the Bukit Panjang LRT Line. In addition, a new contract was recently awarded to supply 396 MOVIA metro cars for the high-capacity North-South (NSL) and East-West (EWL) Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) lines. The new order brings the number of MOVIA vehicles in Singapore to 672, making it one of Bombardier’s largest metro fleets in the world.
