Avanceon and Rockwell Automation are showcasing their high calibre regional rail projects together at Terrapin’s Middle East Rail in Dubai, United Arab Emirates 8-9 March 2016. Our subject matter experts will be there to walk you through our deep knowledge gained on the Dubai Metro and ongoing infrastructural developments in Lusail City, Qatar.

This page will act as a knowledge hub for the event and key technologies and projects related to rail, but also transport and infrastructure, in the Middle East region.

Smart Technologies

Partnering with Rockwell Automation means that Avanceon can incorporate several cutting edge technologies into our solutions portfolio. An integrated architecture is incredibly powerful and allows companies to streamline their business processes and secure their data to previously unattainable standards.

Dubai Metro Project

DubaiMetroThe Dubai Metro gained a Guinness World Record for the longest driverless rail network spamming 75 km with 49 stations across 2 lines, first of its kind in the Arabian Penninsula

Key Numbers:

  • 72 redundant PLC systems (cabinets) as per below segregation
  • 204 remote I/O panels (cabinet) as per below segregation
  • Backup Control Panels
  • Total number of I/Os is 27,000 (including 20% spares)

We installed BMCS monitors to provide an indication of status and alarms for the operator in response to system demand and control the required systems:

  • Tunnel Ventilation System [Normal & Emergency Modes]
  • Air conditioning system [AHUs]
  • Tunnel Lighting System
  • Signage System
  • Monitoring of Battery Room & Power System
  • Smoke Extraction system [SEFs]
  • Tunnel Drainage System
  • Lift and Escalators
  • Sliding doors at station entrance
  • Fire Protection system

“The Tunnel Ventilation System provided by Avanceon is a Life Safety System. It provides direction to the people through signage system in case of fire, and it also controls the spread of fire through ventilation modes.”

said Omar Abdul Aziz – International Projects Manager

The Environment Control System for Dubai Metro is designed for monitoring and control functions of following systems:

  • Air Conditioning System
  • Smoke Extraction System
  • Station Doors, Lift and Escalators
  • Low Voltage Distribution System
  • Chilled Water System
  • Lighting System
  • Room Temperature Monitoring
  • Uninterruptible Power Supply Monitoring

“Avanceon has successfully met ETA and RTA’s requirements by procuring, building and completing the testing procedures for the panels in 4 weeks, and testing the system at site in a timely manner. This was a challenging task and Avanceon has proven its capability as an established System Integrator by meeting deadlines.”

Said Mr. Bidyut Chattopadhaya – Project Director at ETA
