Invensys Rail will serve as a subcontractor to Five Star Electric Corp. in a $167-million project that will replace two New York City Transit rail interlockings located at 71st – Continental Ave. and Van Wyck Blvd. on the Queens line.

Invensys’ portion of the project includes the interlocking control systems, associated wayside signal work and a redundant PLC Code System.

Upon completion, the new interlocking control systems will be communications-based train control ready. Invensys will engineer and manufacture equipment for four signal rooms with controls, racks and relay equipment, plus wayside signals and enclosures. In addition, the company will provide field testing, commissioning and training support for the equipment and systems it supplies. Invensys’ portion of the $167-million project will total $41.9 million.
