Remote Train Monitoring System
An off-grid system was required to power trackside monitoring and computer equipment 24/7. The harsh conditions and remote location meant that the power system’s reliability, robustness, and redundancy was critical to maintain uninterruptible power.
Installation crews would be required to meet rigorous client-specific safety training and conduct detailed pre-planning before accessing the site. The equipment needed to be capable of withstanding temperatures commonly higher than 45°C during summer.
