In late 2012, as part of the Rideau Transit Group (RTG), SNC-Lavalin was awarded the contract to design, build, finance and maintain Ottawa’s Confederation Line, one of the largest public-private partnership (PPP) rail transit initiatives ever undertaken in North America.
In supporting this project the Rail Control Systems (RCS) team has provided a range of technical services including Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Human Factors and support in management of EMC.
- Developing the PHA for the GoA4 maintenance facility and main line, to mitigate risks arising from the design
- Undertaking the Human Factors assessment of the existing bus transit control room for management of the new line
- Applying EN 50126 to develop the Reliability Availability and Maintainability (RAM) Plan to ensure system elements incorporate best practice RAM design
- Producing the EMC Control Plan to manage design, manufacture and testing phases
The Confederation Line is a sustainable and cost-effective light rapid transit solution that will get passengers to their destinations more quickly, while significantly relieving existing traffic congestion in Canada’s capital.
Working through our parent company, SNC-Lavalin
has provided a range of specialist technical skills and expertise to address a number of strategic and detailed technical risks and issues helping to define the solutions that will be implemented for the Confederation Line project.
