TÜV SÜD has completed a project for their client NG Bailey, a leading engineering and services company.The project, which started in 2016, provided electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) assurance for the Crossrail Farringdon Main Station on the new Elizabeth Line in London.
Crossrail Farringdon station is an important interchange between Thameslink Overground and London Underground Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines. EMC assurance was required for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems to ensure that electrical equipment functions satisfactorily in the rail electromagnetic environment, and does not introduce interference to other equipment. More specifically, EMC assurance was required to meet the Crossrail and C435 Farringdon EMC management plans and regulatory EMC requirements under the EU EMC Directive 2014/30/EU.
EMC assurance was provided at equipment level by reviewing the EMC certification of some 150 types of equipment and ensuring that relevant EMC standards had been met. EMC assurance at installation level was provided by a design review against EMC codes of practice, EMC risk analysis of each potential EMC threat and victim and inspecting the electrical installations in the Eastern and Western ticket halls and platforms. The EMC documentation was brought together in a final EMC Technical File.
