Gold Coast Light Rail, Gold Coast, QLD

​Bombardier Transportation Australia

Project Lead Engineering, 2012 - 2013 


Achievements:

Gold Coast Light Rail shares some parts of the alignment with local road traffic and passes in the middle of tourist areas. Single contact wire has chosen to address both safety, simplicity and aeathetic issues. Span length is reduced to maximum 40m. Overhead current capacity became limited without catenary so, it was compensated by underground parallel helper cables. Cantilever and steady arms are made of insulator materials which satisfy double insulating properties. Overlaps are isolated.

Eagle Down Coal Mine, Bowen Basin, QLD  

​AECOM Australia

Senior Project Engineer, 2010 


Achievement:

Provisional design for Overhead Catenary System (Simple Catenary according to Mark IIIB standard) and its traction power was carried out for 8km balloon loop coal mine load out facility. In fact, it is considered as a siding of the existing QR heavy freight 50kV electrified railways. The package was prepared for the owner's tendering documents to form a D&C contract technical requirement.

25kV mass transit Electrified Railways, Perth, WA  

​Public Transport Authority

OHL&TPS Engineer, 2009 - 2010


Achievement:

A major part of technical requirements for all green/brown field Overhead Catenary Line projects in WA 25kV electrified railway network are documented into the code of practice. This crucial document is called: Code of Practice for the design, supply, construction and commissioning of 25kV AC Traction Overhead Catenary Equipment. The document has been revised to reflect latest Standards and Technologies.                                      

1500VDC Overhead Catenary for 24km electrified mass transit  

2x25kV (50kV) Overhead Catenary for electrification of 1000km urban rail transit 

1500VِDC mass transit Electrified Railways, Shiraz, Iran  

​System Electric Ltd 

Rail Engineering Manager, 2007- 2008


Achievement:

Shiraz is one of the big cities in Iran. 24km of the Overhead Catenary lines for the underground mass transit system passing under the Shiraz streets was one of the biggest challenge ever. Detailed design has been done for the first phase of project, 8.7 km double track OHL for up and down based on European standard EN 50119. A simple catenary system with double contact wire was developed to meet current gradient requirement. Computer modeling and simulation was done for stability study.

Some site and workshop support were carried out for integration of the components and installation.

2x25kV urban transit rail electrification, Tehran - Mashad, Iran  

​System Electric Ltd 

Rail Engineering Manager, 2008-2009


Achievement:

Mashad is a holy city and tourist areas located about 1000km North-East away from the capital Tehran. The existing line is diesel operated. As part of the feasibility study and proposal making in order to enhance the passenger rail transit operation, few attempts were taken place in response to the government decision to fund on the electrification. Concept design and feasibility study for the Overhead Catenary lines was conducted as part of the master package to be offered to the governmant. OHL concept design has been developed for about 1000 km of double track OHL for up and down adapting European standard EN 50119. ّFramwork of the design was Computer modeling and simulation to select the best system type, foundation requirement and equipment sizing.
