CLIENT: Ansaldo STS

Fenix South East Asia (then named MGB Systems) was appointed to fulfil the independent verification and validation function on the Ipoh-Padang Besar electrification and double tracking project – approved by the Malaysian Minister of Transport.

Fenix was responsible for the independent verification and validation of all safety-critical signalling and train control designs for the project. This included scheme plans, control tables, Microlok circuits, Microlok application data, ATP data and track bonding plans.

In addition, Fenix took on the role of ongoing witness and provided audits of all testing and commissioning activities on the project as well as final T&C certificate sign off for all station interlockings.

The Ipoh-Padang Besar electrification and double tracking project is one of many recent projects improving rail transportation across Malaysia. It involved electrification, re-signalling and double tracking of 320km of rail line and 21 stations between Ipoh and Padang Besar as a continuation of an earlier electrification project between Rawang and Ipoh.
