Metronet rolls out asset tracker for tube trains

Will Hadfield

The company that runs three-quarters of London’s tube lines has installed an asset management system that for the first time gives a single view of the operator's 347 trains running on 471 miles of track.

Metronet Rail has installed the Ellipse Enterprise Asset Management system in a £14m deal with consultant AMT-Sybex. The software is already used to track assets owned by both Network Rail and the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.

Implementation of the system was one of the conditions of Metronet’s 30-year deal to run most of the capital’s underground lines.

Ellipse replaces 150 legacy systems that contain some asset-management functionality.
