TÜV SÜD has been awarded the Overall Independent Safety Assessment (O-ISA) contract for Light Rail Transit LRT3 in Malaysia by the main contractor MRCB George Kent Sdn Bhd.
The Light Rail Transit Line 3 (LRT3) will connect two million people from Bandar Utama to Johan Setia, Malaysia via 37 kilometres of tracks that will serve 20 stations, with 2 interchange stations as well as 5 provisional stations by 2024. The line will be designed and operated as a fully automatic (GoA4) driverless Rapid Transit System.
In this project, TÜV SÜD has been awarded the Overall Independent Safety Assessment by MRCB George Kent Sdn Bhd for the LRT3 line including the assessment of the LRT3 core subsystems such as Light Rail Vehicle, Signalling & Train Control System, Trackworks and Power Rail, Power Supply and Distribution System, Telecommunication, Depot Equipment and Maintenance Vehicles, Electronic Access Control System and Automatic Fare Collection. The scope also covers assessment of works implemented throughout the project phases: Design, Manufacturing, Installation, Testing and Commissioning (T&C), Trial Running and Fault Free Run (FFR).
Chia Jen Wen, General Manager, TÜV SÜD Malaysia, mentioned that TÜV SÜD is honoured to be entrusted to carry out Overall Independent Safety Assessment for LRT3, being the first assessment of its kind in Malaysia. Around the world, our TÜV SÜD rail experts mitigate risks resulting from increasingly complex railway systems and strive to verify that the relevant technical and operational risks have been reduced to an acceptable level.
René Bambor, Business Unit Manager Rail Services of TÜV SÜD also highlighted that with public transportation being a decisive factor for the economic growth of the Greater Kuala Lumpur area, we are very glad to support this lighthouse-project with our long-lasting experience in similar projects by ensuring that all safety targets are being met and that the complete railway system and its subsystems are compliant with safety requirements and global railway standards.
Increase safety and reliability with risk assessment practices.
