Sella Controls to supply Tracklink products for Network Rail’s safer isolations project

McNicholas Construction has awarded Sella Controls a contract to supply its Tracklink technologies to Network Rail.

Network Rail is implementing a trial of its B5 isolation process – formerly referred to as the safer isolations programme – across four areas of the Wessex route.

The B5 isolation works form part of a main contract awarded to McNicholas Construction by Network Rail as part of its electrification and plant framework.

Working closely with Network Rail, Sella Controls and McNicholas Construction will supply a control solution that will allow Network Rail to remotely apply isolations to a substation busbar, track section or an entire line of route.

Sella Controls business development manager Chris Elliott said: “This is a significant project for Network Rail aimed at making the application of isolations safer, quicker and more secure.

“The delivery of the B5 isolations project to Network Rail is critical for their business ahead of the next control period (CP6).

“Having worked closely with McNicholas to develop the scheme design for Network Rail, we are now focused on delivering a successful trial installation.”
