Riyadh Metro : Data consolidation delivers insight
20 Oct 2020
Cohesive was asked to develop a Technical Database Solution in combination with a BI-tool as well as a Data Warehouse to collect & connect all Sensor, SCADA and RAM data from all Metro related systems. Our RAM (Reliability, Availability and Maintainability) performance management system then identifies all performance elements and provides an insight into key performance indicators (KPIs). These Solutions will have to be handed over to the O&M Operators once construction has been fully completed. The completion and handover of these solutions are scheduled for end of 2020.
Cohesive was asked to develop a Technical Database Solution to collect & connect all Sensor, SCADA and RAM data from all Metro related systems. With Riyadh consisting of the following, the project costed $22.5 billion to build and the full network to be operational within 3 years:
- 6 metro lines
- Total length of 176 kilometers
- 85 stations
- Total of 470 cars
Cohesive was awarded to implement the Asset Management Solutions for all six Metro Lines. The challenge was to participate with all Bidders in the Tender process, which started in 2018. We managed to provide our offer to 4 large Operators / Bidders to increase our chances for being awarded for the Asset Management contract. Competing for the contracts was tough (with international and local companies bidding against us) and many visits to the Middle East were necessary to convince the Operators of our solutions and experiences in this Business. All hard work resulted in being awarded Projects for both Operators in 2018 and 2019.
