1 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section1 1 Date Suppliers Technical Forum - Innovation David Pinkney

2 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section2 Innovation on Thameslink Using new products equipment and tools to reduce costs and create efficiencies Often teamed with headquarters, maintenance, or another programmes Most have a large engineering content and the development of a new product Often involve product acceptance and changes to ways of working Need to flexible, adaptable, thinking out of box But still supporting programme delivery Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section2

3 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section3 Example of a successful project - New CCTV technology for London Bridge Use of mega pixel technology to reduce the number cameras needed for London Bridge station. The reduction of cameras produces reductions in brackets, power, cables The like for like saving for the London Bridge installation is £1m (25%) but the big saving is in maintenance – circa 60% Project Managers role was to gain acceptance by the HQ CCTV group and NR Head of Security and have the standard changed

4 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section4Date Presentation title to go here4 Mobile Maintenance Unit The MMU is a train with a workshop, stores, messing, worker transport Self contained train for installation and maintenance Moving green zone – work force protected Realisation is that MMUs will radically change the way we plan and manage our site work

5 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section5 Mobile Maintenance Unit

6 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section6 Mobile Maintenance Unit

7 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section7Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section7 Mobile Maintenance Unit – Status Nationally 7 units are needed (4 specifically in the south east) Aligning Thameslink with Kent In the tender process – 5 companies bidding Planning visits to users

8 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section8 Mobile Maintenance Unit – Status Continued For Thameslink two extra variants For tunnel working - –To reduce costs – TOC compensation, 7 day railway –Keeping one track open while working on the other track –Still a mobile green zone –Expanding slides and opening side doors Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section8

9 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section9 Mobile Maintenance Unit – Status Continued Second variant –Enables slim-line gantries to be used –Efficiencies in installation and maintenance The necessary kit is there Difficult bit – –How are we going to use it? –Define the processes –Which variants do we need? Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section9

10 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section10 Cable Management Sleepers Replace –Under and Over Track Crossings –Orange Pipes and Yellow Split Ducting Savings of the order 95% Reduce risk as the track bed is not disturbed Two variants product accepted In use across the whole of Network Rail as well as Thameslink

11 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section11Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section11 Cable Management Sleepers – further work Modified –Wider rebate –Clips –Inserts to mount third rail insulators Production moulds for GV54 sleeper on order Thameslink requirements until 2018 defined

12 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section12 Cable Management Sleepers

13 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section13Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section13 Negative Short Device The Negative Short Device will be used to improve the efficiency and safety of third rail isolations. Replace short circuiting straps and strap-men (can have up to 25) Simplifies the process considerably Project timescale 40 weeks Proposed fit NSDs to London Bridge low level Manual switched solution – not using SCADA Only 25 NSDs needed

14 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section14 Increase in Work Time with NSDs Current situation –Available work time 2h 30m –Complicated –Many phone calls With NSDs –Available work time 4h 00m –Much simpler –Far fewer phone calls

15 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section15 NSD Savings Reduction in resource needed over 2 years = £840k Reduced communication over 2 years, 208 hours = 52 extra shifts Not cancelling the first and last trains over 3 years = £300k Reduction in risk –Reduced requirement for line blockages –Less staff on the infrastructure –Reduced involvement from interface stakeholders –No strapping in the wrong area –Reduced communications –Reduced staff on track / less chance of injury

16 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section16 Snow displacer Very simple, inexpensive length of foam that sits in the point ends Stops snow (anything else) from entering and jamming the points Saves delay minutes Saves energy (30%) by insulating the point heaters Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section16

17 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section17 Snow displacer installation

18 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section18 Snow displacer – status Thameslink is part of the national programme Trial underway at Hither Green Further work – –Develop a version for the very narrow end of the points –Arrange for points to be automatically fitted to the points at the factory –Productionise the existing snow displacer for easier fitting Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section18

19 Electro-luminescent PPE Worked very closely with the suppler Fhoss to complete final development Thameslink Route Access Team is testing 10 sets of PPE Battery life 12 hours A worker can be seen 1 ½ miles down the track Compliant with Rail Standards Additional cost is not significant Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section19

20 Pavegen – electrical energy from foot falls Sustainable renewable energy Floor tiles form the green area in the mock up photo Hopefully drive assets such as destination boards Trial site in the station to be set up Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section20

21 CCTV Scanning of Pantographs A damaged pantograph or shoe can cause much damage to the infrastructure and very many delay minutes Even more when we are at 24 trains per hour CCTV scanning will allow damaged trains to be sidelined before they enter the Thameslink central core An installation at Farringdon will check that the pantograph is down as the train travels south into the third rail area Probably the trial site will be at Farringdon Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section21 A camera installation showing the housing containing the radar, flash and camera

22 Date Create your footer by changing copy in the Header and Footer section22 CCTV Scanning of Pantographs A drawing of a typical installation in the Nederlands

23 Balise Bars Can be used for Balise Bars from Siemens, Alstrom and others Can be fitted or removed in less than 2 minutes using standard tools Use standard rail fittings so no drilling or digging out the ballast

24 AWS magnets Ordinary ferrite magnets – –Lose strength due to interference in third rail areas –Bulky heavy – Require frequent maintenance or rebuilding Vortok - Rare Earth Magnets –With an opposing coil and digital control electronics –Smaller and Lighter –Little or no loss of strength –Plug coupled so quick to fit

25 Innovation on Thameslink Not just be confined to Network Rail Surely our partners have innovations as well Example – Invensys use the IBM Rational tool provides platform for integrating and synchronizing product development processes The need - Invensys Rail Dimetronic needed to improve its competitiveness and reduce time- to-market for its solutions. This required automating, streamlining and increasing control over development processes. The solution The company used integrated IBM® Rational® software to automate code generation and speed developers' response to frequent changes and new traffic signal requirements. The benefit The company reduces time-to-market for products by 40 percent and reduces cost and risks of development by generating all code in compliance with coding standards. This case study has been published by IBM Please tell me of your innovations on Thameslink Are there opportunities for partnering?
