Over the past 20 years, Pandrol has developed its position as a global leader of rail infrastructure solutions for metro and light rail, with its systems installed in numerous railways throughout the world. Designing and manufacturing fastening systems, welding, electrification solutions and track equipment, Pandrol can offer multiple solutions from a single supplier. The company’s products and services are designed to maximise efficiency of track installation and operation, and to address safety and environmental factors such as noise and vibration. A recent addition to the Pandrol service offering is track-based monitoring equipment which generates data that is then analysed using Pandrol innovative systems.
This offers customers insight into their metro and underground tracks that can be used to prevent maintenance needs occurring and maximise uptime.
The following metro feature looks at recent projects that Pandrol has delivered globally. Each project presented unique product and environmental requirements that the Pandrol team, in collaboration with their customers, worked to meet.
Pandrol has worked collaboratively with Barcelona Metro for over 20 years and continues to deliver solutions that meet the needs of the expanding, historical city to reduce noise and vibration and minimise the disruption of service for maintenance. For the Line 5 Barcelona Metro project Pandrol was asked to develop a solution that could offer the same high performance as the current system but was lighter, more ergonomic and quicker to install.
The priority for Santiago Metro is keeping the city moving, this is increasingly challenging as the city experiences regular disruptions to service following earthquakes. Pandrol worked in partnership to develop a value engineered solution that could offer reliability in extreme conditions.
Sydney Light Rail is an example of the challenge contractors and operators have constructing railway infrastructure in the centre of a capital city. Pandrol worked with its customer to plan a schedule of works with minimal interruption to one of the busiest intersections in downtown Sydney enabling residents to live and work side by side with the transport system.
