What is KUTS ?

As Sarawak aspires to become a developed and high-income State by 2030, a reliable transport system is vital in mobilising greater productivity and economic growth.

Sarawak Metro is implementing the Kuching Urban Transportation System (KUTS) project to minimise traffic congestion on the city’s roads while spurring productivity and economic growth.

ART

At the heart of KUTS is the ART which will be the backbone of the public transport system transformation.

 About

OCC

Operation Control Centre (OCC)

  • The Operation Control Centre (OCC) can be considered as the heart of the ART operations for KUTS.

  • The OCC is manned by traffic controllers, who monitor the hydrogen vehicles’ movements and also, via CCTV, the situation on board all our hydrogen vehicles and stations.

  • The OCC for KUTS will be located in the Administration Building of our Rembus depot.

  • It will provide integrated controls, as well as monitor and deal with any emergency situation – on the main line and in our depots – during our operation.

  • Functions and capabilities:

    • Monitor and control the hydrogen vehicles' service

    • Supervise and control the electrical power supply and distribution systems

    • Monitor and control the E&M equipment, system-wide

    • Monitor and control fire safety

    • Perform depot operations and maintenance activities

    • Communicate and monitor passengers’ movements

    • Coordinate with other modes of transport

    • Perform operation management

    • Perform incident management

    • Automatic launching and reception of hydrogen vehicles from / to depots

    • Systems and equipment fault reporting

    • Internet facility for communication with social media (Twitter, WhatsApp etc.)

    • Event log system

    • Fire suppression system

    • Flood monitoring system

    • Cross wind monitoring, anemometer wind speed sensor
