MELBOURNE: Synertec Corporation Limited has announced the successful achievement of Practical Completion of the advanced integrated control and monitoring system for fire and life safety in the Melbourne Underground Rail Loop (MURL). This project was awarded to Synertec in January 2018.
The successful achievement of Practical completion of this project follows the design and commissioning of other advanced integrated control and safety systems in critical infrastructure this year, such as the solution delivered on Jemena’s Northern Gas Pipeline.
Managing Director Michael Carroll said: “We are delighted to have successfully delivered a number of valuable contracts in 2019. The Synertec team is working hard with our customers to deliver technically challenging solutions to critical public infrastructure such as MURL. The selection process for projects like this is extremely rigorous, and to go on and deliver successfully on time and on budget as promised, as well as strengthening our relationships within Metro, is extremely rewarding. I would like to acknowledge the team at Metro Trains Melbourne for their professionalism and ability-our teams have collaborated smoothly and effectively throughout the project, with the outcome being a great product which will improve critical operations and safety functionality for Melbourne’s rail system.
“Our unique systems-based approach to engineering, which was a large part of the basis upon which we won this project, has once again delivered a complex solution safely, on time and on budget. We believe that the consistent successful delivery of these types of projects entrenches Synertec as a leading Australian provider of specialised engineering products and solutions and provides excellent opportunity for us to gain future contracts from these major organizations and/or within the industries in which they operate-both nationally and globally”.
Metro Trains Melbourne, Systems Engineering Manager, Mr. Simon Sinnott said: “Throughout the project’s lifecycle Synertec successfully utilised systems engineering processes to ensure successful delivery of all project deliverables. This approach enabled continuous verification and validation during the projects implementation against the requirements set out at the project’s conception.
“Metro have formed an excellent relationship with Synertec’s highly experienced senior engineers and project managers over the course of the project. Synertec’s professionalism in dealing with a user-centred design approach for a critically important safety system has allowed a customised, highly efficient platform to be developed without compromising the safety of the operational system.
“Synertec have worked collaboratively with a range of systems experts and end users to deliver an operational control system that is the benchmark for future systems development. Metro look forward to continuing their working relationship with Synertec into the next phases of the MURL upgrade works.”
