SRE will be refurbishing our second generation trains
The newest addition to the SMRT family, Singapore Rail Engineering (SRE), was established to capitalise on our rail engineering expertise to offer specialised engineering services to support and maintain rail networks locally and abroad. SRE was set up in June 2014 as an Engineering, Procurement and Construction unit to provide Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Services, as well as develop engineering solutions for SMRT and other clients. SRE has teamed up with Toshiba Corporation to form Railise Pte Ltd, a springboard for the global and exclusive sale of Toshiba’s high-tech Permanent Magnetic Synchronous Motor (PMSM) propulsion system. The PMSM is more energy efficient, quieter and requires less maintenance. In April 2015, SRE also partnered Faiveley Transport to market and supply MRO Services for Rolling Stock Components in Southeast Asia. As these countries develop their rail networks, the demand for MRO Services is expected to grow significantly over the next 10 years.
