In 2011, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) selected Thales for its revenue collection systems for the Downtown Line and for the upgrade of its SCADA system on the North-East Line for the Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system.
In 2012, Thales was awarded two major re-signalling upgrade contracts for the North-South and East-West Lines and for the Tuas West Extension. Thales had previously supplied revenue collection systems for the North-East and Circle lines.
In December 2013, Thales opened a regional integration centre in Singapore for urban rail, integrated communications & supervision systems. The centre will focus on innovative developments based on Thales’ world-leading SelTrac® Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) solution and its versatile ATSSoft supervision flagship platform.
In January 2015, Thales was awarded a contract for the design and manufacturing for signalling, communications and an Operational Control Centre (OCC) for Taiwan’s Light Rail Transit (LRT) project in the city of Danhai. Through this project, Thales extends its transportation footprint in the region with cutting-edge urban transportation technology and integration expertise developed and initiated in Singapore.
