Lot No: 1 Lot title: Remote Condition Monitoring and Condition Based Maintenance Systems

1)Short description

London Midland are seeking to implement a Remote Condition Monitoring and Condition Based Maintenance system for selected subsets of our rolling stock fleet. Realtime (or ‘Near realtime’) reporting from on-train monitoring systems will be securely transmitted via mobile data networks, supplemented by WiFi at certain locations, to shore based systems for alerts, analysis and maintenance planning. This system should interface with existing depot maintenance systems where required.
Dependent on the existing on-vehicle systems, this may require interfaces with the existing systems, and/or the installation of additional sensors on board the vehicle. A through-train Ethernet backbone and other communications elements will also be required.
Any response to this notice must consider the need to future-proof any system and be cognisant of the other potential projects listed at II.1.5) of this notice.
Works associated with this notice are subject to the Contracting Entity securing funding for the works.
