The Aspect3 Alliance

The Aspect3 Alliance partnership is a collaboration between Aurizon and Siemens and was formed to plan and deliver signalling infrastructure improvements for a number of projects relating to the Aurizon network, including WIRP 1, Segment 2.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged by Aurizon to carry out an Independent Review of the Target Cost Estimate (TCE) prepared by Aspect3 for the Signalling & Telecommunications elements of WIRP 1 Segment 2. Whilst undertaking the review of the Aspect3 TCE we also took into consideration the overall Target Outturn Cost (TOC) that included costs from other parties in the Alliance. The primary scope of this exercise was to review the current Aspect3 TCE as presented to the Alliance Leadership Team and discuss any areas requiring further development or investigation by Aurizon prior to construction.

Services

Independent Evaluation Services.

The outcomes

Following a review of several areas of concern raised by Aquenta, the TCE was recalculated and the Independent Evaluator’s role confirmed for the revised delivery of the Signalling & Telecommunications elements of WIRP 1 Segment 2.
