“We are confident that our past experience in the design and construction of such class of vessels will position us and ADSB well to meet the challenges,” said Ng Sing Chan, President, Marine at ST Engineering. 

Separately, ST Engineering announced that it has won new smart city-related contracts in Taiwan’s Kaohsiung and Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro. 

With these two new contracts, ST Engineering has built up a track record of delivering more than 700 smart city related contracts in 130 cities.

“Securing these landmark projects provides further validation of the unique strengths, quality and reliability of our Smart City solutions, and our credentials as a leading global Smart City participant,” says Chew Men Leong, president of urban solutions at ST Engineering. 

The company’s contract in Kaohsiung is part of a $445 million MRT project won by a consortium including Hyundai’s Rotem.

Under terms of the project, ST Engineering will be responsible for providing the communications systems, automatic fare collection system, platform screen doors, and signalling system. 

The contract in Rio de Janeiro, on the other hand, is part of the world’s largest single deployments of a city-wide public smart street light control project.

Specifically, ST Engineering will deploy its Telematics Wireless T-Light Galaxy Smart Street Lighting solution with AGIL IoT platform to connect more than 300,000 LED street lights across the city. 

Similar to the patrol vessel contract, the value of these two other contracts are not disclosed.

Last week, ST Engineering announced it secured more than $1.82 billion worth of contracts in 3Q21, bringing its total order book at $18.2 billion as of end September.
