Zonegreen Celebrates Landmark Order

30th March 2015

Rail safety specialist, Zonegreen, is marking a milestone moment in its history, as the 1,000th order of its depot protection equipment prepares to leave the firm's Sheffield headquarters.

The achievement has been reached just six and a half years since Zonegreen's launch and will see its engineers install 14 walkway beacons at Siemens' Ardwick depot in Manchester. Whilst the majority of these 1,000 orders have been made in the UK, Zonegreen's flagship SMART Depot Personnel Protection System (DPPSâ„¢) is used across three continents Europe, Australia and Asia and export activity continues to increase. Siemens Rail Systems, one of the largest rail industry organisations in the world, recognised Zonegreen's technological expertise and the performance quality of its equipment at last year's UK supplier event, naming the firm -Best Service Supplier (Depots). It also enjoys longstanding relationships with other train operating companies, including Hitachi, Alstom, First Group, Southern, Scott Rail and London Midland. Gemma Houghton, Zonegreen's sales and marketing manager, said: -This is a real landmark occasion for us and demonstrates the significant impact we have made on the rail industry in a relatively short space of time. Protecting people and infrastructure in depots is of paramount importance to train builders and service providers and our products are recognised globally as the most advanced, reliable and tested of their type. SMART DPPSâ„¢ controls train movements, providing a safe working environment for maintenance engineers operating in rail depots. The system is now specified in most modern facilities and combines powered derailers, road end control panels, train detection equipment, warning signals and personal datakeys. Zonegreen will be displaying its range of depot safety products on stand W10 at this year's Railtex exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham from May 12-14.
