Alstom awarded long term rolling stock and signalling maintenance contract for Sydney Metro

11 July 2018 - Alstom has been awarded[1] a 15-year maintenance contract by Metro Trains Sydney (MTS[2]) for the maintenance of the 36km-long Sydney Metro Northwest railway.

The contract includes the maintenance of Alstom's 22 six-car Metropolis train sets, Australia's first fully automated passenger rail vehicles, Alstom's Urbalis 400 Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling systems, point machines, operation and maintenance of the depot and the cleaning of the trains.

More than 50 full time people, which will include 5% apprentices, will maintain the system during the operational phase of the project which will utilise Alstom's industry leading HealthHub maintenance platform. HealthHub is an innovative maintenance approach designed to shift from traditional mileage-based maintenance to condition-based predictive maintenance, thus reducing the lifecycle cost for the operator.

HealthHub is supported by various high technology data capture solutions including TrainScanner, Track Tracer and Catenary Tracer - an automated diagnostics portal capable of measuring in real-time the condition of the maintained assets. This real-time monitoring approach will result in increased reliability and availability of the fleet and associated infrastructure.

"Alstom is delighted to be providing long term maintenance support to the iconic Sydney Metro project." said Mark Coxon, Managing Director for Alstom in Australia and New Zealand. "The award of this contract further strengthens Alstom's position in the railway maintenance sector in Australia", said Coxon.

Mobilisation of the Alstom teams is expected to start mid 2018 with the project fully operational in the first half of 2019.
