ABP Hull Point Converter

The first installation of the new Zonegreen Point Converter has been completed at Associate British Ports (ABP) Hull site. The 11 Point Converters have been installed at the Port to help the staff manage the increase in cargo generated by their new Biomass Silo.

The Point Converters will not only improve the safety of the train drivers by minimising their exposure to manual handling injuries and slips trips and falls; but will also increase the efficiency of the cargo trains by allowing routes through multiple hand points to be set at the push of a button, removing the need for the driver to manually manoeuvre them.
