Date Oct 2016
Project Name Severn Tunnel Electrification Upgrade
Project Location Rogiet, Monmouthshire, Wales
Scope of supply Standard 2F+ clamps complete with stainless steel support framework
Requirement Ellis patents were involved in the Network Rail project to electrify the Severn Tunnel. The requirement was for a solution to carry the insulated ATF cable. An added complication was the aggressive conditions within the tunnel and the requirement for a 40 year product design life.
Solution Ellis worked with Network Rail to develop a solution based around the proven 2F+ two hole cable clamp alongside a bespoke bracket manufactured from Super Duplex Stainless steel.
