Project info

CL165/0

  • Production commenced on 12/09/15 and ended 31/01/19 (duration of 3 years, 4 months)
  • GRS team re-delivered eleven units on time in a row during 2017

CL165/1

  • Production commenced on 23/01/16 and is expected to complete on 14/09/19
  • First three units were subjected to C6 heavy maintenance overhaul only
  • Units four to eights were re-delivered with C6 and PRM modifications installed successfully
  • Thereafter, we accommodated 2-unit holding to facilitate faster throughput of the fleet units for both customer and end-user. This resulted in dual production lines installing C6 and PRM on certain units, and C6, PRM and Air-ccoling on other units
  • In Sept 2017, we re-delivered the very first C6, PRM and Air-cooling modified unit of 165110
  • For the temperature record-high summer of 2018, we re-delivered 19 cars that had air-cooling installed to assist with passenger comfort
  • Currently on 2-unit holding retro-fitting air-cooling to CL165/1 units that had previously undergone C6 and PRM upgrades only.
