NEEL - for animal protection on railway linesThe NEEL company was established in 1993 by a group of former employees of the Railway Scientific and Technical Centre (now: Railway Institute) in Warsaw.
The main scope of the company's activity is development and production of microprocessor automated systems of electric current supply for the railways traction of 3kV DC (for railway) and the 600V DC (trams). These devices constitute part of the state-of-the-art traction stations equipment constructed on the basis of the so-called 'distributed intelligence' utilizing the CAN-BUS type of the computer buses. Our devices have been installed in 54 modern PKP (Polish State Railways) traction sub-stations and in a couple of tram sub-stations.
Over 140 PKP section cabins and over 100 PKP traction sub-stations have been equipped with a system developed by NEEL: it is EUU type electronic dependencies system, that has replaced previously used central-type devices.
In years 1997-2006 NEEL developed and installed the heating and air-conditioning testing system for MSOW-type passenger carriages stationed at three PKP rail terminals. The system enables: testing of the heating and air-conditioning systems, current measurements, defect localization, as well as preliminary warm-up of carriages awaiting for the connection to a locomotive.
The production offer contains also the absolute novelty on a world scale – animal deterring device "UOZ-1" designed for high-speed railway tracks. These devices were installed on the railway tracks of the E20 railway line between Minsk Mazowiecki and Siedlce during its modernization in years 2003-2004. Next applications were installed at the E65 line Warszawa – Gdańsk and at the E30 line. In November 2012 the system UOZ-1 was installed on two sections of the Russian Railways RZD: Moscow - St. Petersburg and St. Petersburg – Helsinki. Currently initial field trials of the UOZ system are carried out in Japan and Israel.
