The contract has been awarded by the main works civil contractor for this section of the railway. Skanska Costain Strabag Joint Venture (SCS JV) are in the process of construction works that includes two tunnel sections. These are the Northolt Tunnel and the Euston Tunnel.
Each Tunnel consists of a number of ventilation shafts and portals that require BMS SCADA to monitor and deliver performance information both locally and to a central Engineering Management System.
The contract requires SELLA CONTROLS to undertake the complete design, including equipment selection, engineering, implementation, factory integration testing, installation and commissioning of eleven independent BMS SCADA applications. The project commenced in August and will run through to the completion of Skanska Costain Strabag JV’s main works program once all of the installations have been handed back to HS2.
The BMS SCADA system will be designed to interface and integrate with Ventilation Systems, LV Power Distribution, Portal and Ventilation Shaft Utilities and Fire Systems. This will require a significant level of stakeholder engagement with other design and delivery teams from multiple sub system suppliers as well as interfacing with HS2 to deliver one common solution.
Chris Elliott, Business Development Director for SELLA CONTROLS Rail business commented; “The award of this contract by Skanska Costain Strabag JV is a demonstration of our expertise in rail systems integration and our position in the UK rail market as a premier supplier of control system applications.”
Elliott commented further; “Having already completed projects in support of the enabling works at Euston for the HS2 program, the business was eager to support the main works program.
Jörg de la Motte, CEO for HIMA Group commented: “To be awarded this prestigious scope of works is excellent news for the business both in the UK and for the HIMA Group globally”.
