Siemens Mobility delivers rail electrification for two metro lines in Singapore

Siemens will be supplying the Sicat SR (Siemens Catenary System Standard Rigid) aluminum overhead busbar system. Compared with conventional overhead power lines, Sicat SR has a lower installation height and has a low voltage drop. In addition, the system has a high current-carrying capacity, short-circuit resistance and reduced contact wire wear.
"The extension of the Circle Line and the North East Line will expand the mobility options for millions of commuters in Singapore. With the electrification of the two lines, we will be making an important contribution toward decisively improving the availability of public transport in the city-state. Just last year, we won two key orders for signaling systems and digital services in Singapore," said Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
In March 2018, Siemens Mobility was commissioned to deliver the signaling system for the extension of the Downtown Line 3. An order to supply a Rail Enterprise Asset Management System followed in September 2018.
