Safeguarding maintenance operations.

Industrial safety specialist CASTELL reports it has supplied a customised trapped key interlocking system to Bombardier Transportation to safeguard shore supply maintenance operations on ELECTROSTAR trains. Castell says the safety system is fitted to all Bombardier ELECTROSTAR trains, produced for Southern Railways, South Eastern Trains and c2c.

"Castell has been supplying trapped key interlocking systems to Bombardier for 15 years," said Guy Heywood, commodity buyer at Bombardier Transportation. "We chose Castell for this project because we needed a high-quality technical solution that met specific requirements at a competitive price."

Each safety system comprises a shoe gear earthing switch interlock and a shore supply socket interlock, both of which are mounted on the train carriage.
