In early 2016, Electro-Wind was approached by Devontech to collaborate on the design, build and obtain approval for a range of PSP transformers for the Feltham and Wokingham projects
For over 35 years Electro-Wind has been designing and manufacturing single and three phase transformer products for customers in the UK, Europe and Global Markets, having a well-established reputation as one of the UK’s leading specialists we have fulfilled many contracts for companies such as Alstom, Tata, Corus, Mitsibishi and Toyota.
Electro-Wind, Devontech and Atkins global; have been working on the project which covers some 80 miles of railway and 500 pieces of outdated signalling equipment, which is being replaced as part of Network Rail’s commitment to transforming the UK’s entire network through the deployment of digital signalling and train control technology, transforming signalling for passengers, business and freight operators. The new signalling equipment which uses digital technologies will bring a number of benefits such as increased capacity for trains on the network, fewer delays, enhanced safety and lower costs.
To date Electro-Wind has manufactured 57 transformers for this project ranging from 5kva up to 60kva. The Transformers have been 400v/650v signalling transformers that Devontech and Electro have worked closely together to get PADS approval for the Network rail Infrastructure.
The project started in December 2015 and is due for completion in March 2023, there have been five phases to this project which is currently running on schedule and to the planned time frame, with final commissioning for the project into service in April 2024.
