Infrarail 2014 – Eltek today announced that it has been selected to supply a range of high efficiency power conversion products for phase two of the Nottingham Express Transit project (NET2) that will more than double the size of Nottingham’s tram network by the end of 2014.
Eltek’s power modules have already been approved by Network Rail, owner and operator of the UK’s railway infrastructure, and are configured and programmed to provide the basis for both single- and three-phase, battery-backed uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems that service critical power applications throughout the Nottingham tram network.
Eltek equipment was selected for this project by main electrical contractor Blackburn Starling & Company Ltd’s UPS specialist integrator, Harland Simon UPS Ltd. The Harland Simon integrated UPS’s utilise Eltek’s advanced technology to provide compact, high efficiency systems designed for simplified maintenance and operation.
“The Nottingham Tram project is a significant regional transit extension for Britain’s Network Rail system and being selected for this activity is significant for Eltek,” said Lars Dousa, Eltek Executive Vice President. “The rail industry is embracing modular, HE systems as a way to provide more reliable power for the network. Harland Simon is a great partner and we look forward to working with them.”
“We are pleased to work together with Eltek on the tram stop power systems for the Nottingham Express Transit project,” said Andy Parfitt, Sales Director of Harland Simon UPS Ltd. “Eltek’s power modules are a perfect fit with our UPS system, which is of critical importance to this railway project.”
