Global leader in asset management to bring training and software solution to Hong Kong’s MTR

Aladon just launched a data-driven maintenance program for the  MTR  in Hong Kong. Aladon was selected for the project when MTR sought to develop a maintenance program reviewed by the reliability centered maintenance (RCM3™) methodology. “After working with MTR in a pilot program in past summer, they confirmed their commitment to using RCM3 across their major systems,” says Marius Basson, Aladon’s president.  

MTR transports more than 5 million passengers daily, and this proactive project will cover major departments at MTR, including: Civil, Electrical Distribution, Permanent Way (Tracks), Switches and Controls, Rolling Stock (Light Rail, Heavy Rail and High Speed Rail), Stations and Ancillaries.

The project will be executed over the next five years in two phases, covering training, RCM3 software, system interface and configuration.

What’s most exciting about this project is that it demonstrates how RCM3 can ensure safety and reliability for the major systems that are integral to cities and countries where they operate. Aladon can apply the experience and knowledge they gained working with other transit companies like Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) to ensure a MTR’s smooth transition to a high reliability organization.

“This project involves all the stakeholders, including the regulators. It illustrates the benefit of improved asset performance by having a single source of reliability data that will be integrated with real-time monitoring and a data-driven decision framework,” says Basson.
