Transport infrastructure such as railway signalling systems need to meet stakeholders' expectations and provide value and safety to the customer through the entire lifecycle of the asset. In NSW Australia, the AEO Framework ensures that engineering and transport delivery services are delivered by capable and competent organisations.

The AEO Model is managed by the ASA, the division of TfNSW responsible for administering transport asset standards. Based on ASA guidance, which makes reference to international standards such as ISO55001 (Asset Management)(1) and ISO 15288(2), the "AEO Requirement" stipulates the necessary processes to meet the customer's requirements such as the product engineering management process(3). As a result of the assessment done by the ASA, the organisation recognised Hitachi's compliance with the AEO requirements and Hitachi was awarded AEO status with scope to supply engineering services (including design, manufacture, testing etc) for onboard systems for Automatic Train Protection (ATP) and Automatic Train Operation (ATO) systems.

Hitachi is contributing to the advancement of the Australian rail industry by supplying railway system solutions of high quality and reliability. As an AEO, Hitachi will continue to provide safe and reliable solutions to the NSW customer through its close working relationship with TfNSW.

Hitachi has supplied railway system solutions of high-quality and high reliability to the Australian market and attaining AEO status aligns with our objective of continuing to expand our railway systems business in Australia.
