Vortok International has been awarded a large contract by Metro-North Railroad in New York for the installation of train fault detection systems.There will be three systems at sites in New York State (Ossining), Connecticut (Green Farms) and Long Island NY (Belmont Park).
The work shall include the design and furnishing of a new pre-wired house which contains a four track hotbox detector (HBD), four track wheel impact load detector (WILD) and four track automatic equipment identification (AEI) tag reader system. All systems will report back to the operation control center (OCC). These systems will need to continuously monitor and measure the wheel/rail loads produced as a result of irregularities from the rolling stock wheels and monitor passing trains for overheating bearings.
Vortok will be prime contractor and the project is due to run for 507 days. A key element of the technical proposal was use of the unique Vortok MultiSensors compared to traditional strain gauges.
