For Queensland Rail (QR), ABB provided a significant win when upgrading more than 130 stations and workshops in South East Queensland to deliver better monitoring capability. The Nexus RF system was robust enough to be unaffected by challenges such as high voltage circuits, moving trains and reinforced structures between levels.
With safety the central priority for QR, the strength of the combined software and hardware solution meant it was easy to retrofit existing stations and integrate each station into the larger QR network for efficient remote monitoring and testing.
Fittings were selected from the energy-efficient Stanilite Platinum range, ensuring reduced maintenance costs and disruption in the long run. QR was also able to pinpoint areas needing a higher classification product for improved lighting performance and full assurance of the system's ability to fulfil its safety obligations. More than 50 of the contracted 130 stations have been delivered to date, providing certainty at every stage of the rollout.
For asset owners, contractors, and operators and maintainers, the innovative ABB Stanilite portfolio draws on the best of international emergency lighting advancements while being specifically matched to the standards and compliance requirements of Australia and New Zealand. The team continues to build on 45 years of engineering history, providing the confidence and proven track record that only come with experience.
