The company also implemented a SCADA system, delivered depot workshop equipment, and established system integration with the incorporation of the ST Electronics Thailand provided telecommunications and platform screen door systems.
Additionally, Siemens Mobility will also offer maintenance work for a period of ten years along with overall project management.
