ADComms are pleased to announce we have been awarded the contract for the design of the Kent Rectifier and Battery Renewals for Network Rail. The FTN rectifiers on the route were installed between 7 and 13 years ago. Some of the batteries have been renewed, but many are now reaching their end of life.
The scope for this contract is to survey 202 FTN sites to enable option designs to be defined. A single option design will then be produced following selection and approval by the client.
ADComms have vast experience in rectifier and battery technology and will be looking to present options to reduce the size and weight of the battery blocks to aid with manual handing. Focus will also be on alternative power source options.
