Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) has signed on with Chennai headquartered Bahwan CyberTek (BCT) group to build an integrated Common Asset Management System (CAMS) for Mumbai Metro Line-3 (MML-3). 

The Mumbai Metro Line-3, a 33.5-kilometre-long corridor running along Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ, is expected to commute over 16 lakh people daily. 

Under the contract, BCT will provide the end-to-end design, implementation and support for CAMS by leveraging its expertise in delivering enterprise-class asset management solutions, a statement said  

The system, when ready, will optimise processes, perform lifecycle cost monitoring and improve the overall cost efficiency of MMRC.  

It will work through a single-window enterprise application which will help MMRC better manage critical assets such as tracks, power supply systems, traction systems, signaling and control systems, platform screen doors, telecommunication systems, plants and equipment, automated fare collection systems, escalators, and lifts, tunnel ventilation systems, security systems, and electro-mechanical systems. 

Commenting on the project from MMRC, VM Muralidharan, COO at BCT, said, “Having executed large-scale EAM projects across the world, we understand the scale and volume of assets involved here.  

“Our AI/ML-driven integrated asset management solutions are proven for keeping critical assets operating at maximum efficiency,” he added. 

BCT will deploy a dedicated team of technology experts, enterprise solution architects, and integration and quality assurance experts to work throughout the total project period of four years. It expects the CAMS solution to be ready in 18 months.
