Camlin Rail - KeliosAmey Metrolink Carbon Wear Case Study

12th June 2023

Evidence: Since installing PanVue, KAM has already seen the positive impact by already identifying trams that need to be withdrawn from service with issues. The effectiveness of Camlin’s technology has already been proven, and we are now in the stages of fine-tuning the project details.

Action: Camlin Rail installed PanVue at Deansgate-Castlefield, Zone 1. This strategic point of the network and key location was purposefully selected to maximise coverage and efficiency, enabling 100% inspection on the operating fleet.

Background: Greater Manchester Metrolink is Britain’s largest tramway system, owned by the public body Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and operated and maintained under contract by KeolisAmey Metrolink (KAM). Originally opened in 1992 at 31km in length, the line has since been extended to over 100km, carrying around 120,000 passengers each day, making it the most extensive light rail system in the United Kingdom.
