Huawei Telecom Power Provides Reliable Power for Mombasa Nairobi Railway

2016/12/6 0:00:00

Background

The Mombasa Nairobi Railway is the biggest infrastructure project in Kenya since independence. The railway will connect the port of Mombasa to Kenya’s capital city Nairobi. With an estimated cost of USD $3.8 billion, this flagship project under the Kenya Vision 2030 development agenda calls for 472 kilometers of new standard-gauge track for carrying passengers and cargo. The transport capacity will be 25 million tons.

Challenges

The Mombasa Nairobi Railway communication system is responsible for vehicle scheduling, data transmission, and information communication. Because these communication functions are vital for ensuring railway safety, the system must have a reliable power supply. In particular, the power supply needs to provide stable, reliable power despite unstable grid conditions. A management system is needed to monitor the status of equipment at sites along the railway. The railway project managers want to ensure reliability while minimizing equipment investment and allowing for subsequent expansion.

Solution

Huawei is providing an intelligent telecom power solution that includes embedded power, indoor power, Central Office (CO) power, and intelligent site energy management (NetEco) system. These power systems are designed using high-efficiency, high-density rectifier modules; advanced thermal simulation; and strict testing. Huawei telecom power solutions can be seamlessly expanded and bring simple, efficient and reliable value for customers. 

The NetEco system for site management and environmental monitoring focuses on unified management of site energy, environmental and safety parts, etc. Real-time monitoring and alarm information help maintenance engineers remotely manage sites. In this system, monitoring equipments are used in the dispatch center, while signal collectors, switches, and monitoring modules are deployed in railway stations and sites along the railway. The management system can monitor environmental conditions such as room temperature, humidity, smoke, water immersion, as well as monitoring power-related units such as telecom power, UPS, batteries, and air conditioner.

Benefits

Huawei has simplified power management by integrating signal collection and monitoring functions into a power system. A single management system can manage telecom power, UPS, and related equipment. This solution enhances reliability while minimizing costs. The intelligent site energy management system has the following characteristics:  

  • Flexible expansion: With hierarchical management, one system can achieve unified management of multiple sites
  • Intelligent management: Centralized monitoring and management with remote alarm management helps locate problems quickly
  • High availability: The system maintains full compatibility with standard equipment and supports third-party device access with customized links
  • High efficiency and energy saving: Multi-level, multi-dimensional management and energy- efficiency analysis help optimize power use.  

Huawei telecom power complies fully with Mombasa Nairobi Railway operational requirements for safety, stability, high efficiency, and reliability. Huawei telecom power equipment can be upgraded over time to handle the growing demands of the communication system, while offering compact, highly integrated, intelligent solutions that help achieve rapid deployment, with minimized maintenance and management costs.
