Malaysia has issued a call for bids to design and install a UPS system to support a new line under construction by the country’s Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT).
MRT said the UPS would be needed for elevated stations under the network’s Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) line.
Details of the tender are expected to be unveiled on 14 December and bids submitted by 14 February 2018. However, according to technical specifications listed for the project on MRT’s web site, the UPS should supply power “for one to two hours during outages or unstable supply”.
The SSP line is the second phase of the Klang Valley mass rapid transit project that will serve a sector with with a population of around two million. The 52.2km line is expected to fully enter into service in the second quarter of 2022 and have 37 stations.
