Stratio and SBS Transit move forward with the largest predictive maintenance project in the world

Stratio, the world leader in predictive maintenance solutions for public transport, based at Instituto Pedro Nunes in Coimbra, has announced a strategic collaboration with transport company SBS Transit to increase the reliability of public transport in Singapore by implementing predictive maintenance technology across the entire bus fleet. This project will be the largest in the world and will cover more than half of Singapore's bus network. The project will minimise bus downtime, reduce operating costs and improve the passenger experience.

Founded and based in Coimbra at Instituto Pedro Nunes' (IPN) accelerator, Stratio was created to improve the quality of public transport and help operators guarantee an excellent service that passengers can trust. Stratio's predictive maintenance technology takes advantage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) models and works as an early warning system that allows operators to predict faults before they occur and take measures in advance to avoid service interruptions.

Stratio's proven success in reducing costs and increasing the reliability and efficiency of transport services around the world has made it possible to close this partnership with SBS Transit. This collaboration will involve more than 3,000 buses on the Singapore network operating with technology developed in Coimbra. This milestone reinforces Coimbra's reputation as a centre of technological innovation for mobility and strengthens Stratio's position as a global player in the transport industry.

Jeffrey Sim, CEO of SBS Transit Group, We are determined to guarantee the reliability of our buses as part of our efforts to make public transport more appealing to the population. This approach is also in line with our sustainable mobility project. By monitoring the condition of the buses, we are able to predict failures and ensure that the buses do not interrupt their service, contributing to better transport reliability and raising the confidence and experience of our passengers every time they travel with SBS Transit.

As the leading operator in Singapore, we have taken yet another step forward by extending the use of this technology to new electric buses as well. By 2030, 50 percent of Singapore's public fleet will be green. Our investment in Stratio's system will allow us to improve the operation and maintenance of these zero-emission vehicles, and continue to contribute to continually raising industry standards."

"We are excited about the expansion of our partnership with SBS Transit, which will allow us to increase cost savings and efficiency gains to the entire Singapore operation," said Rui Sales, President and co-founder of Stratio. "We are proud to be partnered with and trusted by the largest and most demanding public transport companies in the world, with large operations and multi-billion euro turnover."

"The expansion in Singapore is an important milestone due to the quality of the public transport system, which is a model and an example of excellence in passenger transport," added Rui Sales. "Excellent public transport gives people better access to goods, services and opportunities. That's why Stratio is committed to enabling a future where vehicles don't stop. We want passengers to be able to rely on buses to get them where they need to be, on time."
