Two awards taken home by TPS at UKRIA 2018!

We are extremely happy to share that we have been awarded twice for our Static Converter at the UK Rail Industry Awards ceremony (UKRIA) upon being shortlisted in 5 categories! This is the second time TPS have won in the Traction & Rolling Stock category, however this year we were selected as winners for Cost Base Reduction as well. The event took place at Battersea Evolution, London on 22nd March 2018.

TPS have won amongst impressive competitors that have also provided truly remarkable solutions. This demonstrates that our experience and capabilities are indeed outstanding and that our expertise allows us to offer highly reliable power conversion solutions to the rolling stock industry.

We have received two awards this year due to our efficient and reliable Static Converter which replaces the Motor Alternator (MA) equipment installed in loco-hauled coaches and trains powered through Thirdrail. Our innovative Power Supply can increase energy efficiency, provide substantial savings to the train operator and could lead to energy savings of over 4kW per journey compared to a motor alternator (MA) set. The Static Converter uses the existing mounting arrangement thus minimising conversion costs and provides a modern electronic MA replacement fully compliant with all rolling stock and network rail standards.
