Digital technology to optimise infrastructure investment and maintenance

If the development of new transport networks continues with major projects emerging all over the world, tomorrow’s infrastructures will also be those that exist today. Indeed, the transport networks we use everyday can sometimes be several decades old, or even more.

The risks associated with poor asset management are real, and the associated challenges concern all mobility stakeholders, from the design of assets to their end of life.

Taking care of existing networks and/ implementing efficient asset management strategies are therefore prerequisites for the development of sustainable mobility, guaranteeing the safety and high-quality services for the users.

WE SUPPORT YOU IN MAKING THE BEST INVESTMENT AND MAINTENANCE DECISIONS

We carry out analytical work to turn data into useful information for decision-making. We rely on digital tools as well as on our technical expertise in engineering and maintenance of transport networks to model the lifecycle of assets and draw strategic scenarios with their operational and financial impact

Inspection

Enable you to know your assets (state of wear and tear, ageing, financial values, asset register, etc.), to help you make decisions and see the effects of their implementation.

Advisory

Advise you on investment and maintenance scenarios that meet the objectives and the budgetary constraints of your network, to ensure a high level of service.

Analyse

Help you understand the causes of deterioration of your assets (use, time, environment, maintenance carried out, etc.) and their consequences on performance, costs and associated risks.

DID YOU KNOW?

Contrary to popular belief, asset management does not begin when a line or piece of equipment is commissioned, but rather at the planning stage of their investment. The technical and financial choices made at the start of a project have repercussions over the next 10, 20, 30 or 40 years.

Whether it is a greenfield project or a renovation project, the challenge is to decide how to invest wisely in one’s network or in one’s fleet in order to have physical assets that meet the desired objectives in terms of performance, costs, and risks.

SYSTRA offers comprehensive asset management services supported by its ISO 55001* certified staff and expertise in maintenance engineering, with a focus in transport systems and infrastructure while leveraging the new opportunities brought by the digitalisation of the discipline.

*ISO 55001 is an international standard for asset management.

DRONES TO FACILITATE INSPECTION OF YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE

Drones equipped with high-resolution cameras and sensors can quickly and safely monitor railways, bridges, tunnels and other critical infrastructure assets. 

They capture data in real time, providing accurate information on the condition of assets. 

This means that anomalies, such as cracks or wear, are detected early, enabling maintenance teams to identify potential faults or malfunctions in advance, reducing the risk of costly breakdowns and ensuring uninterrupted operations.
