Siemens Mobility to deliver a turnkey metro system for Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport

“We are excited to win and deliver this important project to help connecting communities and travellers with the new Western Sydney International Airport and the growing region. This project will give the people of Sydney sustainable transport with new rail services, offering quick, reliable and CO2-free journeys”, said Michael Peter, CEO Siemens Mobility. “We will provide the full suite of our latest digital technology, platforms and portfolio solutions. Our Railigent X digital asset management applications will ensure highest reliability and availability of the assets.”
The Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport project highlights a significant milestone for Siemens Mobility in Australia, with the first turnkey project and first Public Private Partnership. The new airport is forecast to have 10 million passengers by the early 2030s and will be Sydney’s first 24/7 airport. The city-shaping rail link will support access to the new Western Sydney Aerotropolis that will create approximately 200,000 new jobs, providing a major economic stimulus for the Western Sydney, New South Wales and national economies.
Siemens Mobility will implement Railigent X – the Mobility Application Suite for digital services – to help gain valuable data insights in operation to enable greater reliability and availability for the assets. Railigent X will provide an optimized maintenance regime as a result of FRACAS (failure reporting, analysis, and corrective action system) and RCM (Reliability Centred Maintenance) analysis. 
For over 150 years, Siemens has been helping to transform Australia. In 1893, Siemens completed construction of the Hobart Tramway in Tasmania, the first electric tramway to be established with any success in the Southern Hemisphere. Siemens Mobility Australia has a proven track record in deploying transport infrastructure projects in all Australian states and in New Zealand.  The company’s core business areas are rolling stock, rail automation and electrification, turnkey systems, intelligent traffic systems, as well as related services.
