SELLA CONTROLS awarded further SISS improvement works by Arriva Rail North

Stockport, United Kingdom – Systems integration specialist SELLA CONTROLS is pleased to announce the contract award by Arriva Rail North (ARN) to deliver Station Information Systems and Surveillance (SISS) enhancements across 25 stations in West Cumbria and Lancashire.

The contract for work packages West 9, 10 & 11 is part of the ARN Station Improvement Fund (SIF) scheme, and combines the addition of Customer Information Systems (CIS) and Long-Line Public Address (LLPA) equipment across the network. The works also include the delivery of CCTV services to assist ARN with their CCTV renewal programme.

SELLA CONTROLS will be working in partnership with Vextrix Management and ARN’s Property Team – Project Delivery Manager Rick Jones to deliver new SISS telecommunications equipment and enhancement works at each location. This approach has created delivery efficiencies for the end client reducing the overall cost of the scheme.

Matthew Watson, SELLA CONTROLS’ SISS Sales Engineer commented, “The award of this contract comes following the successful completion of similar works at other stations for Arriva Rail North. Previous schemes have provided valuable experience and an in depth knowledge of the difficulties encountered when delivering station telecommunication enhancements and renewals. As a result we believe we were able to offer a very practical and cost effective approach to the scheme.”

The works at the twenty five stations are due to commence shortly with completion scheduled for March 2019. Senior Project Manager for SISS Renewals Sam Butcher added, “Having recently successfully delivered four similar SIF packages, our SISS delivery team are keen to progress these works. Once again we will be working in partnership with our approved suppliers and installation partners maintaining our reputation for quality and delivery.”
