Descripción

Access to external facades of MRT stations is usually obstructed by public infrastructure. On the other hand, skylights and claddings inside stations need to be cleaned by men standing in personnel lifts or scaffolding using long poles. As well as for glass claddings, cleaning using long pole may not cover 100% and leaves water stains, stainless steel side panels for long escalator are not able to be thoroughly polished. Hence, cleaning and washing of station/depot façade is difficult and required a lot of manual manpower. Desired Outcome includes: avoid the need for rope specialists for cleaning operation; more than 33% savings in cost; lesser time in cleaning; and more than 50% of manpower saving.
