Silcar provides infrastructure to support the reliable operation of communications and signalling systems for rail networks. From public transport to private corporations, Silcar has proven capabilities in:
- Design and construction.
- Development of solar hybrid and mains powered sites.
- Optical fibre installation.
- Fibre Splicing.
- Radio communication.
- Sourcing, installing and fitout of all new communications systems.
- Testing and cutovers.
- Equipment shelters and cabinets.
Our team meets complex engineering challenges including the design and construction of underground tunnels, “visual impact” assessments, integrated equipment shelters, and revegetation and rehabilitation implementation.
Innovative thinking is applied to project challenges. An example of this was the development of a system to convert kinetic energy to electricity during a trains braking process, returning electricity back into the power system and generating an estimated 20-30 per cent of the energy required to run the train.
