A fantastic afternoon at the Northampton Gateway (NGW) site yesterday with our clients Winvic Construction.
Fenix Rail Systems have been selected to provide a state-of-the-art digital control system to facilitate train automation within the facility.
The photos show the size of this enormous site, it is a brand new facility, a large-scale logistics park which is located adjacent to J15 of the M1 with a strategic rail freight interchange (SRFI), that has been designated for SEGRO and delivered by our clients Winvic.
The Logistics Park Northampton is of up to 5 million square feet of distribution buildings with rail intermodal.
The proposed control system will bring simplicity to what would ordinarily be a complex operation, again, the digital control system will provide a safe operational environment with maximum flexibility and dependability.
Our in-house design team have now started work on the first stages of what is an exciting project to be involved.
Many thanks to our hosts Winvic for showing us around and explaining some of the complexities of this amazing project!
Note: for those interested, the site is a designated a construction site hence rules on PPE differ from rail sites.
