Rail services

train-escalator

In recent years Synertec has expanded its strong control systems engineering capabilities into functional safety / human safety control systems engineering which has benefited projects within the rail industry.

These projects include the contract to design, supply and install new technology to improve the fire and life safety systems at the MURL (Melbourne Underground Rail Loop). The MURL is the underground rail tunnel system that serves the central business district of Melbourne, Australia.

As one of the first to use WinCC OA technology for a safety system in Australia, Synertec embraced the MURL project to develop the skills of the team. This pioneering project has allowed Synertec to now be in a dominant position to roll out similar installations of this technology to a large number of potential clients throughout Australia.

Core Capabilities

  • Detailed design hardware and software
  • Factory acceptance testing, site acceptance testing
  • Onsite installation – without interruptions to normal operations
  • Functional Safety Engineering
  • RAMS Assessment
  • Cyber Security assessments
  • VMWare
  • Integration of CCTV, security systems, fire systems
  • Human Factors Engineering
  • Engineering V-model – systems engineering
  • Disaster Recovery System
  • Simulation and Training System

Relevant Experience 

Synertec has delivered, and continues to deliver, several successful projects in the Rail industry.

This includes the Metro Trains MURL project included a significant upgrade of the SCADA control system software and IT infrastructure. The new SCADA system integrates several systems including PLCs, CCTV (IP video cameras), Security systems, Fire systems, Rail information system and Building management systems. The project demonstrated Synertec’s ability to deliver within a tight schedule whilst ensuring zero-downtime of critical infrastructure – vital in a project of this nature.

In addition, Synertec has performed work on the new Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project, one of the largest infrastructure projects in Victoria’s history. Working closely with the Rail Systems Alliance, Synertec has delivered Industrial Control System design for the new Control and Monitoring System and associated systems, and Systems Engineering for further works related to the Metro Tunnel Project.

Synertec performs work in compliance with key standards, including:

  • EN50126
  • EN50128
  • EN50129
  • SCADA UI development best practice – ANS/ISA 101.01-2015

Water services

water industry

Synertec has an established background in design, construction, integration, commissioning and operation of projects across the water industry, providing multi-faceted engineering skills to shape a full spectrum of water solutions. 

Synertec offers a range of engineering services within the water industries. These include;
  • Automation, Instrumentation & Control
  • Functional Safety Engineering
