Have you heard of the very first project PROSE did 40 years ago?
The customer was Elektrowatt CH and the vehicles were the new Light Rail System in Hong Kong.
Our scope was to design the system and elaborate technical specifications for the turnkey project. We also evaluated the bids, made recommendations for the winning bidder, and assisted in the contractual negotiations. Our task included design and manufacturing supervision of the rolling stock, witnessing the test and commissioning of the system as well as consulting in the first operational year and advice on the system expansion.
Thanks to the in-depth know-how of the PROSE experts, that made it possible for the KCRC (Kowloon Canton Railway Corporation) to take the best-suited option for the overall LRT system.
The experience of PROSE was the key to good technical specifications for the rolling stock; realization by the contractor was possible and all technical problems could be solved on short notice, with no impact on the schedule or cost.
Using the PROSE engineers for the design approval in the construction phase eliminated potential conflicts in the interpretation of the specification.
The system, featuring 22.5 km double track with end loops and about 15 high platform stops, 70 uni-directional high-level 4-axle LRV’s, open (honor) fare system, was built in 3 years’ time. Opening (as defined in 1984) was on 08.08.1988!
