Friday, 5th June 2015

Nomad Digital has won a tender to provide a Remote Condition Monitoring (RCM) proof-of-concept for Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM), that will be will be designed and deployed with Nomad Tech (a joint-venture between Nomad Digital and Portuguese EMEF).

The initial trial is intended to provide a basis for the introduction of preventative and intelligence-driven maintenance practices, and will be carried out on 4 Alstom X’trapolis train units, with scope to implement the RCM technology fleet-wide on a total of more than 400 units, following a successful proof-of-concept.

The Nomad team will now work closely with MTM to implement a RCM methodology that achieves the operator’s long-term operational goals, providing valuable data and analysis tools designed to improve the management, availability and reliability of its fleet, as well as its equipment and on-board train components, generating cost savings which will enable the operator to pursue more preventative and intelligence-driven maintenance initiatives and practices.
