Interim Result of the Independent Audit and Assessment on the 48 Dalian Trains

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The audit and assessment of TUV Rheinland on the Dalian trains is substantially completed, but not yet concluded.

TUV Rheinland is the independent certified certifier contracted to audit and assess the entire MRT-3 system in general, and the Dalian trains in particular.

According to TUV Rheinland’s Interim Report, additional information and documentation on design and validation evidence are still being obtained, and further type and routine tests are still to be conducted.

Among the tests that TUV Rheinland recommended to be conducted is a weighing test of the Dalian trains in Manila, because the previous project team for the project failed to attend and witness the weight testing done in Dalian, China in November 2015. 

According to TUV Rheinland, the weighing test should be done to eliminate any doubts, and so DOTr MRT-3 can witness and formally sign off on the trains’ weight.

Assessing the Dalian trains’ safety, compatibility with MRT-3, and compliance with their Terms of Reference, through a highly qualified, independent, and ISO certified certifier, with extensive experience in the certification of trains, has always been the DOTr’s approach in resolving the Dalian trains issue, which is consistent with prudent international industry practice.

Knowing that the Dalian trains will affect the safety of hundreds of thousands of MRT-3 passengers daily, the DOTr and MRT-3 management will ensure that the necessary processes are observed in their assessment.

We will not leave stones unturned, especially on the issue of safety. WE WILL DO IT RIGHT THIS TIME.

Regardless of the independent assessment’s outcome, this administration remains committed in running after the officials that caused the current degraded state of MRT-3.
