22 trainsets of 6 cars each were awarded to Kawasaki Heavy Industries and CSR Qingdao Sifang by the Land Transport Authority. In 2013, a further order of 13 trainsets was placed and as of 2014, all 35 trainsets have been officially put into revenue service.
On May 6, 2009, the Land Transport Authority announced that Kawasaki Heavy Industries and CSR Qingdao Sifang had won over Hyundai Rotem, Bombardier Transportation and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to secure the contract at a cost of S$369 million, despite Hyundai Rotem offering the lowest bid at S$323 million for the order of 22 trainsets. CSR Sifang handled the manufacturing and testing of the rolling stock, while Kawasaki oversaw the project and design. The C151A contract was the first successful joint venture between these two companies in the international market.

C151As went into service with STARIS installed.
The car numbers of the trains range from x501 to x570, where x depends on the carriage type.
- The first digit depends upon whether the car is the first, second or third car from the end of the train it is nearer to, where the first car has a 3, the second has a 1 and the third has a 2.
- The other 3 digits is the train identification number. A full length train of 6 cars have 2 different identification number, one for the first 3 cars, and the same number plus 1, for the other three. The smaller number is always at the front.
- For example, train 569/570 would consist of 6 cars with serial number 3569, 1569, 2569, 2570, 1570 and 3570 respectively.
- Depending on the direction of travel, the sequence may be reversed.
