Siemens Mobility has secured a nearly €70m contract to carry out electrification works of the Circle Line Stage 6 and North East Line extension (NELe) in Singapore.
Commissioned by Land Transport Authority (LTA) in Singapore, the contract includes the delivery of a direct and alternating current rail electrification system and overhead power lines for the NELe.
Siemens Mobility CEO Michael Peter said: “The extension of the Circle Line and the North East Line will expand the mobility options for millions of commuters in Singapore.
“With the electrification of the two lines, we will be making an important contribution toward decisively improving the availability of public transport in the city-state.”
“We will be making an important contribution toward decisively improving the availability of public transport in the city-state.”
The metro lines will be upgraded to the Siemens Catenary System Standard Rigid (Sicat SR) aluminium overhead busbar system.
The Sicat SR system has a lower installation height and a low voltage drop compared to traditional overhead power lines.
Additionally, it has a high current-carrying capacity, short-circuit resistance and reduced contact wire wear.
In March 2018, Siemens was contracted to deliver the signalling system for the Downtown Line 3 extension in Singapore. It also received the order to supply a Rail Enterprise Asset Management System in September 2018.
Earlier this month, Siemens received a contract to supply 14 S70 light-rail vehicles to Houston’s Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (Metro) in the US.
These vehicles will be manufactured at Siemens’ Sacramento facility in California and will strengthen Metro’s S70 fleet to 51 vehicles.
