As part of the C651 MLU project SRE and Toshiba setup a 50/50 Joint Venture called Railise Pte. Ltd. to manage the re-tractioning scope of the project. The upgraded C651 trains will be equipped with a Permanent Magnetic Synchronous Motor (PMSM) developed and manufactured by Toshiba. The PMSM is an AC Synchronous motor whose field excitation is provided by permanent magnets. Compared to conventional AC or DC motors, a PMSM is more energy efficient, produces less noise and requires less maintenance. The amount of greenhouse gases emitted by the PMSM is lower, adding to the environmentally-friendly credentials of SMRT.
