The Arriva fleet of Class 158 Units are to receive DC Airco Cab Air Cooling provided by Transys Projects Limited. Transys Projects were delighted to be awarded the contract to integrate and then provide first unit installation assistance for this equipment which is manufactured by DC Airco.

Kevin Lane - Managing Director of Transys Projects said “We were delighted that LNWR won the main contract and are very pleased to be supporting them with capital equipment for Cab Air Cooling.”

He added “This equipment has a low power demand but oxymoronically is exceptionally powerful in terms of cooling.
