Conductor Rail Heating Panels for Network Rail

20.02.2013

Case Study Image

An additional 40 sets of Conductor Rail Heating have been supplied in 2013. LCS have a Network Rail Approval PA05/04652/T for the Supply Panels which have been supplied in 2010, 2011 & 2012. These projects should ensure that the 2010 disruption of the railways due to snow and ice should be a thing of the past. LCS is proud to play its part in keeping the Rail network moving throughout the year.

LCS developed and subsequently supplied a number of fully compliant remotely operated units to Network Rail. The control system ensures that there is no energy wasted heating the conductor rail when increased ambient temperature prevents the formation of ice and remote control was considered essential because of the dispersal of a large number of units throughout the south east of England, primarily to cover Sussex and Kent.
