HIMA has signed a “strategically significant” contract with Indonesian rail supplier PT Len Industri.

Under the €1.8 million deal HIMA will upgrade safety technology at 25 stations in the Southeast Asian country – HIMA’s biggest contract in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) area to date.

The contract with PT Len Industri, a state-owned company that produces railway systems, follows an expansion of HIMA’s Asia-Pacific business in 2016 with the opening of a new regional headquarters in Singapore.

HIMA’s head of rail Sedat Sezgün said that its Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) safety controllers offer maximum safety at a cost efficient price and hopes COTS will become Indonesia’s railway industry’s go-to choice in the long-term

He added: “For HIMA, the signing of the railway project with PT Len Industri is an important strategic success.

“Offering smart COTS safety solutions to our customers in the rail industry worldwide is an essential part of our strategy.

“The new contract underlines that we are on the right on track – not only in our home markets, but in APAC as well.”

HIMA is a worldwide provider of smart safety solutions, including electronic controls for signalling.
