Rail power systems services support the railway industry with independent verification in optimising their railway power supply systems to accommodate rising energy demands, ensure constant availability and meet energy efficiency requirements. Due to growing challenges, ageing assets and complex operating environments, manufacturers also have to ensure that new components and complete systems are designed with reliability, availability, maintainability, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrical safety in mind. Testing services for rail power systems involve safety assessment and management, safety assessment of design and interoperability, traction power simulation, specification of main equipment and design review conducted by independent experts
A comprehensive assessment and verification of rail power systems provides multiple benefits:
As an equipment and rolling stock manufacturer facilitate access to global markets
Save time and money by establishing an overall energy quality control to ensure minimal downtime and avoid costly interruptions
Verify the reliability and functionality of your rail power systems and ensure its reliable and safe operation
Promote a green environmentally conscious image by improving energy efficiency
