Extending the lifetime of rail assets

As mature rail operators in the region are facing the issue of aging rail issues, a decision has to be made between refurbishment and replacement of assets. Rail operators in the region are starting to implement condition monitoring technologies to monitor the health of their rail assets. By diligently capturing and analysing asset data and information related to asset condition, operators are adopting a predictive maintenance approach which allows them to estimate how long the assets will last before replacement is needed and the additional maintenance efforts needed to upkeep their assets.

At Asia Pacific Rail 2017, we gather the following asset management experts from Hong Kong, Thailand, Taipei and Singapore to share their strategies and innovations in asset management capabilities to enhance the value and lifetime of rail assets.

  • Dr Tony Lee, Chief of Operations Engineering, MTR Corporation
  • Lakthan Thongnopakoon, Assistant Managing Director (Project Engineering Group), Bangkok Expressway and Metro
  • Tom Chang, Commissioner, Department of Rapid Transit Systems, Taipei City Government
  • Leow Meng Fai, Director – Asset Condition, Standards & Renewal, Land Transport Authority Singapore
