The contract was awarded to Mitsubishi Corporation, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering, Ltd and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. Consortium in February 2022 at a value of around $439 million.
Aside from the train procurement, the contract also entails the provision of a signalling system, guideway system and depot equipment for the expanded Sengkang LRT depot, where all SPLRT trains are based.
These new LRT trains are the third generation of rolling stock for the SPLRT, following two earlier generations of Mitsubishi Crystal Mover LRT trains which were very similar in design. The C810 trains entered service starting in 2003, while the C810A trains progressively entered service from 2016.
When all trains are rolled out, these trains will double the number of two-car trains in the SPLRT fleet, which currently comprises 16 two-car trains and 25 one-car trains (as of Feb 2022).
These 17 new trains will progressively replace the existing one-car trains, as mentioned by LTA in February 2022.
The contract number for this batch of trains have yet to be confirmed. An earlier version of this article carried the incorrect contract number. This article was also updated in February 2022 with the LTA press release.
