Radio Frequency Engineering (RFE) have earned the coveted Gold Quality Award in the Hong Kong MTR Projects Quality, Safety, Environmental and Stakeholder Engagement Awards Presentation Ceremony for its work on the radio systems of MTR West Island Line (WIL) and South Island Line (SIL).
RFE Managing Director Paul Chan said the award was recognition of RFE’s out of the box thinking when it comes to design.
“Not only did RFE complete the cellular systems for the West Island Line within a five-day turnaround in time for the grand opening, we also reconfigured the Fire Services Department (FSD) radio system at South Island Line to allow for early inspection in a practical and economical way.”
It’s not the first time RFE have been awarded for their work on the projects, previously winning the bronze award in the same category in 2013.
The cellular coverage and radio services, which cover MTR operation as well as the FSD and the Hong Kong Police, are essential for railway operation and on time line opening.
RFE, a BAI Communications company, has been partnering with MTR to provide radio systems since 1997 and is a leader in the tailored design and integration of wireless subway and confined space coverage systems.
