Stobart Rail & Civils partner with James Fisher Prolec to make rail operations safer for everyone.
Stobart Rail & Civils and JF Prolec launch new i-Systems ALO service to uplift the safety and productivity of rail-road vehicle (RRV) operations.
Stobart Rail & Civils – civil engineering technology specialist, partners with James Fisher Prolec – an industry-leader in machine productivity and safety systems, to support the development of its innovative i-Systems ALO service. As part of the companies’ joint-vision to ensure that all operators return home safely from work, the service improves off track plant safety and productivity, delivering reliable protection for operations in close proximity to live railway lines.
Combining two widely-trusted technologies – excavator hazard mitigation and 360– the i-Systems ALO service restricts unsafe plant movements to protect operators, infrastructure and the passing public. Drawing on JF Prolec’s advanced virtual wall technology, the intuitive boundary enforcement solution allows ALO co-ordinators to plot onsite hazards with I-Marker units, enabling safe working environments to be established quickly and easily. This not only minimises operator input for enhanced safety, but also reduces set-up time for increased productivity.
The i-Systems ALO service will be showcased for the first time at Rail: North of the Border Conference 2020 on 5th March, at the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow where Stobart Rail & Civils are set to exhibit. During the event, the team will be running live demonstrations and Q&A sessions to convey the technology’s unique capability. With both sides praising the partnerships’ success, Stobart Rail & Civils and James Fisher Prolec have expressed that they will continue to collaborate to raise the bar for plant safety.
