Schneider Electric to Replace Bukit Panjang LRT Power System

Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has been selected by Colas Rail, a leader in rail infrastructures, to supply the electrical distribution system for the Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT). Colas Rail had signed a contract on 5 June 2020, with the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) to replace the power supply assets for the BPLRT.

As an expert in energy management, Schneider Electric will be providing an end-to-end electrical distribution solution for the BPLRT. As part of the upgrading project, the BPLRT’s power management system will also be replaced by Schneider Electric’s Power SCADA Operation (PSO), which has been specifically designed for large electrical distribution applications.

“Schneider Electric is very excited to be able to bring our global expertise to this project. Our Power SCADA Operation platform is used globally with our experts having worked on similar projects such as Thailand’s Red Line Mass Transit System Project,” said Damien Dhellemmes, Cluster President of Schneider Electric Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei.

‘’We believe this project will be of benefit to both residents and visitors of Singapore, while taking a step further to reduce carbon emissions. At Colas Rail, we are proud and committed to making a contribution to a more environmentally sustainable rail transport system,” stated Christophe Chassagnette, Colas Rail Country Director for Singapore and Indonesia.
