The team consisting of Chen Sin Tan and Yen Ching Liew impressed the members of the judging panel with their solution for New Metro Interior Design (“Nmetro”).

    Nmetro is truly a win-win-win solution. Based on some of the studied cases, it could reduce the passengers travel time by 25%, increase train network capacity by 50% and reduce the number of trains required for a system by 25%. Overall, this new metro design can save money for government as well as the taxpayers, and reduce the raw material and energy required for a greener metro design.

    The team has received the Challenge:Future Grand Award of 20,000 € at the C:F Summit Gala Awards Ceremony and got the opportunity to present their solution again in front of all Gala attendees, including several business leaders.
