Thales successfully delivers CCS for Sydney Metro
Technology firm Thales has announced the successful rollout of its Central Control and Communication System for the Sydney Metro North West rail system.
The company detailed its work on the project, which commenced operations in May, on August 21.
The Central Control System ensures seamless rail operations, including real-time control mechanisms and data for various diverse systems, while providing a ‘big picture’ holistic view of the entire network.
Meanwhile the Communications System links up the public address and passenger information systems, CCTV and digital information boards, into a centralised system allowing a fully integrated operation.
“We’re proud to have delivered technology that will contribute to fast, safe and reliable journeys for Sydney commuters,” Thales Ground Transportation Australia Vice President Peter Bull said.
“The Sydney Metro project will define our great city for many years to come, encouraging growth and building continued prosperity.”
Thales was selected by the Northwest Rapid Transit consortium to deliver the technology in 2015. NRT was the lead consortium selected by the state government to deliver work for the $7.3 billion Sydney Metro North West project.
