RTA completes phase 1 of RIMMS rail system
The database will play a key role in leveraging the performance of Dubai Metro and Tram and is now fully compiled
RTA’s Rails Agency has announced the completion of Phase I of the Rails Infrastructure Maintenance Management System Project (RIMMS).
The database, which plays a key role in leveraging the performance of Dubai Metro and Tram is now fully compiled, improving the current inspection and maintenance procedures of rail infrastructure assets.
Abdul Mohsin Ibrahim Younes, CEO of RTA’s Rail Agency said: “Phase I of this project includes assessing the current maintenance systems, upgrading the rail infrastructure assets database, and exploring IT potentials in managing the current maintenance systems.”
Comprising five phases, RIMMS will be integrated with RTA information management systems and aims to create opportunities to improve the current maintenance methods, analyse maintenance cost during the assets lifespan, and adopt more systematic inspection procedures.
It will also help create a basis to perform a comprehensive analysis of the rail infrastructure assets management. The system will be fully completed by 2018.
“This plays a key role in upgrading metro and tram services offered to the public, tourists and visitors in line with the prestigious standing enjoyed by Dubai as a global metropolitan city and a hub for business economy, trade, tourism, finance and other vital fields,” Younes added.
