The Klang Valley MRT project is the construction of a rail-based public transport network for the greater Klang Valley. The first MRT line to be implemented is the 51km Sungai Buloh-Kajang line. The line will run underground for a distance of 9.5km beneath the centre of Kuala Lumpur while the rest of the alignment is elevated. The line will have 31 stations of which 7 will be underground.
For the underground stations, tender was released on 2015, seperated into 2 packages. On 1 April 2015, LED Vision and SENA JV received the award for both packages.
Supply, delivery and supervision of installation, testing and commissioning of LED lighting for underground stations from KL Sentral to Bukit Bintang & from Pasar Rakyat to Maluri.
The 7 underground stations were categorised into the following table:
|Package U1||Package U2|
|1. Pasar Seni||5. Tunku Razak Interchange (TRX)|
|2. Merdeka||6. Cochrane|
|3. Bukit Bintang||7. Maluri|
|4. Muzium Negara|
Part of the tender requirements was that the lights are to be manufactured by or partnered with shortlisted Malaysian manufacturers. LED Vision Sdn Bhd is one of these companies recognised by MRT to be capable to supply the products for this project.
One of the challenges was to consolidate the ID design intent with the stringent safety requirements for a public transportation facilities.
Therefore, constant modifications and coordinations were required between LED Vision & architects.
