Lloyd's Register Rail to provide safety, reliability assurance for Dubai monorail project

A Japanese consortium building the Palm Jumeirah monorail system in Dubai recently appointed risk management firm Lloyd’s Register Rail Ltd. to provide project safety and reliability assurance services.

Lloyd’s Register Rail will work with contractor Marubeni to ensure the $245 million project meets its reliability, availability, maintainability and safety (a.k.a. “RAMS”) objectives. The three-year project comprises a 3.1-mile dual-track, manually operated, monorail system with four trains that’ll carry 200 passengers each, four stations and a depot.

Also, Lloyd’s Register EMEA recently opened a transportation office in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). By midyear, more than 100 UAE staff members will be based in the company’s Abu Dhabi and Dubai offices, which will feature a technical center that provides design appraisal, integrity management and consultancy services.
