'''Alstom Metropolis C830C''' is the third generation of communication-based train control (CBTC) rolling stock to be used in Singapore’s [[Mass Rapid Transit]] (MRT) lines along with [[Alstom Metropolis C751C]].
+
==Fleet Numbering==
 
+
The car numbers of the trains range from 841x to 864x, where x depends on the carriage type.
==History==
+
*The last digit identifies the position of the car from the front end of the train; where ‘1’ represents first car, ‘2’ represents second car and ‘3’ represents third car.
In the turnkey contract C830C, 5 tenderers were shortlisted - Alstom, Hyundai Rotem, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Construcciones Y Auxiliar De Ferrocarriles and CSR Zhuzhou. <ref>[http://www.lta.gov.sg/data/apps/tender/doc/484/751C_830C_Tender_Schedule_Financial.pdf Land Transport Authority Schedule of Tenders Receieved]</ref>

*Depending on the direction of travel, the sequence may be reversed.
On 1 February 2012, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the contract for the procurement of the additional [[Circle Line]] trains to Alstom at a value of S$134 million. <ref>[http://www.bombardier.com/en/transportation/media-centre/press-releases/details?docID=0901260d8005e2da LTA and SMRT award contracts for New Trains and Re-signalling project]</ref>
 
 
 
These additional trains will increase the Circle Line's peak capacity by about 60 per cent.
 
 
 
==Fleet==
 
[[C830C Fleet Info]]
 
 
 
==Operation==
 
The C830C trains run on an automated system (without attendant), relying on "continuous two-way digital communication" between each controlled train and the control centre that controls the entire line.
 
 
 
==Features==
 
===Design===
 
The C830C trains may include several features that are seen in the [[Alstom Metropolis C830|C830]] and [[Bombardier MOVIA C951|C951]] trains.<br>
 
 
 
Features include:
 
* an ergonomic seat profile;
 
* red reserved seats for clearer separation between normal and reserved seats;
 
* additional row of straphangers for steadier grip;
 
 
 
===Dynamic Route Map Display (DRMD)===
 
These dynamic route map display panels will provide commuters for their journey status, route information, as well as which side the train doors will open on.
 
 
 
===Platform Gap Width Reduction (PGWR)===
 
Every train door has got a rubber frangible gap that protrudes out which will narrow the platform gap, preventing passenger accidents due to the platform gap.
 
 
 
==Trainset numbers==
 
Individual cars are given a four-digit serial number by the rail operator, SMRT Corporation, numbers ranging from 841x to 864x, whereby "x" depends on the carriage type.
 
 
 
* The first digit is always an 8.
 
* The other three digits is the train identification number. A full length train of 3 cars will have the 3 different consecutive serial numbers. The second and third digits are used to identify the train set, while the last digit denotes the carriage of the train, ending with 1, 2 and 3 in a full length train.
 
* For example, trainset 850 would consist of 3 cars with serial number 8501, 8502, 8503.

Alstom Metropolis C830C are the second generation of trains running on the Circle Line. These trains were manufactured from 2014 to 2015 by Alstom Transport under the Contract 830C.

History

Alstom Transport was awarded Contract C830C in 2012 at a cost of $134 million for the construction of 72 passenger cars.[1]

Faulty Equipment

Passenger Vehicle 46 suffered from a faulty signalling hardware, resulting in intermittent signaling issues which caused widespread disruptions to the Circle Line for a week in both August and November 2016.[2]

Fleet Numbering

The car numbers of the trains range from 841x to 864x, where x depends on the carriage type.

  • The last digit identifies the position of the car from the front end of the train; where ‘1’ represents first car, ‘2’ represents second car and ‘3’ represents third car.
    • (Example) Passenger Vehicle 50 (also 850) would consist of 3 cars with serial number 8501, 8502, 8503 respectively.
  • Depending on the direction of travel, the sequence may be reversed.
