We were first selected for a contract as part of a consortium with the asset management specialist Assetman, to carry out a complete audit of the condition of Hong Kong’s railway network, focusing on operating methods and the asset management process. The audit should last six months after which the final report will be presented to the Hong Kong government.
MTR wants to ensure the quality of its service, including 99.9% on-time performance, while meeting international standards and adopting industry best practice. We will support them by providing benchmarking studies and our extensive knowledge of mass transit networks around the world, as well as offering recommendations to strengthen their maintenance and risk management procedures.Patrick Desforges, Business Development Director, SYSTRA Asia Business Unit
A second, bigger contract
The second contract focuses on operational maintenance and this time SYSTRA is the sole contractor. We will be using our local teams in Asia and SYSTRA France’s Systems teams to do a complete analysis of the track equipment and network infrastructure.
Innovation at the forefront
We will carry out site visits and provide an innovation component with an ad-hoc solution which will study the potential for new technologies, in particular in the fields of modelling and the effective use of data.
