Saudi Railway Co to deploy track monitoring system
Saudi Railway Co has awarded Perpetuum a two-year contract to provide its vibration-based track condition monitoring system for use on the 1 242 km north–south route between Al-Qurrayat and Riyadh.
Announcing its first contract win in the Middle East on February 5, Perpetuum said conditions in Saudi Arabia were amongst the most extreme found on the world’s railways, with temperatures in the desert environment often exceeding 55ºC.
Perpetuum is to supply wireless sensors for two of SAR’s CAF passenger trainsets, along with its vibration engineering expertise and real-time data analytics capabilities.
As a relatively new operator, SAR is looking to develop its in-house maintenance knowledge, with corrective work prioritised. ‘This is a great step for SAR in its journey to implement a condition based maintenance management strategy and we look forward to the exciting opportunities our partnership with Perpetuum will bring’, said Head of Rolling Stock Ashrf Al Jabri.
