‘The best-kept secret in the UK rail industry!’


Jon Childs of HGI (Harrington) Generators explains why the company is the number one provider of vehicle-mounted power solutions to the UK rail industry.


F


or over ten years, HGI has worked closely with senior rail engineers to develop and


produce a range of diesel-powered generator systems that now provide power to over 97% of the Network Rail Infrastructure Monitoring and Measurement fl eet and also the Network Rail NDS ballast and rail delivery fl eet, as well as a wealth of other users’ requirements.


Starting from a simple, silenced three-phase AC set, mounted in a converted coach for the Orient Express Company, our experience has grown to incorporate the widest range of equipment installed on the UK network, including machines up to 250kW in both silenced and open form, with integrated or remote cooling and with fully integrated and automatic fi re detection and suppression systems, all while meeting the industry standards for electrical performance and structural compliance.


HGI engineers work directly with the customer to develop a product specifi c to the


requirement and to meet the needs of the project exactly and without compromise. This has resulted in machines producing 110V three-phase, 650V AC and 850V DC alongside the more conventional single and three-phase AC systems and the latest HGI design can also provide compressed air to maintain system availability on a stationary train, with or without the presence of the loco while reducing dependency on ETS/ETH equipped haulage.


HGI systems incorporate and accommodate existing power supplies, either from adjacent vehicles or from ‘shore’ sources and provide interlocking protection to prevent cross- connection and to maintain resilience.


Working with customers such as Network Rail, Thrall Europa, Cowans Sheldon, Wabtec Rail, RVEL and Chiltern Railways, HGI’s understanding of the industry and its needs has become second to none with respect to railway power solutions.

Prestigious projects completed by HGI include the Network Rail Structure Gauging Train, the Rail Delivery Train and the fl agship New Measurement Train alongside a wealth of other projects including the MRA side-tipping ballast wagons and the JJA auto-ballasters, playing a major part in the construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.


More recent projects include the latest Network Rail Snow and Ice Treatment Trains, two Network Rail Winter Development Vehicles and Chiltern Railways’ (a Deutsche Bahn Company) Mk 3 DVT power vehicles providing near-silent ‘hotel power’ while in stations or stabled.


Whatever the requirement, the UK rail industry trusts HGI to provide the power. Whatever your need, HGI can provide the solution.
