Railway electrification systems supply electric line power to railway trains. Pandrol specialise in electrification systems which enable the power supply for rolling stocks on track.
So how is power supplied to each train?
Through our joint venture with Railtech Alu-Singen, we are the leader in third rail systems with over 2,300 kilometers installed globally. Our conductor rail solutions include under running, top running, and lateral running variants for all types of rail infrastructure. Our coextrusion process using aluminium & stainless-steel makes our conductor rails the best on the market, with no delamination of the stainless-steel strip even if partially worn down.
Pandrol invented the aluminium rigid catenary system 40 years ago, offering between 600 V to 25 kV, and are the world leader in the field, having installed over 2,000 kilometers worldwide. Our rigid catenary is suitable for tunnels (even small gauge) as well as outdoor installations, and works in any condition regardless of train frequencies, polluted air, saline atmosphere, moisture, or extreme temperatures. We also offer a retractable solution for ultra-high safety installations in depots.
Our products are tested with our in-house testing facilities and with external laboratories in accordance to our technical specification and international standards.
We are proud to offer a complete end-to-end service in train electrification, supporting our customers at every stage of their project. From initial design to the actual installation and every step in between, our team is on hand for help, advice, and take on the heavy lifting. We offer theoretical and practical sessions, supervision, and commissioning assistance to our clients.
