West Babylon, NY – PRI has completed the fabrication, testing, delivery, and onsite commissioning of two motor generator (MG) signal power systems as part of the Long Island Rail Road’s (LIRR) East Side Access Project. Located at Grand Central Station and Queens Plaza, these systems are responsible for providing 2400V for the signal power systems in the East Side Access tunnel system.

After the tracks and integration are complete, PRI’s MG systems will provide signal power within the tunnels for the first trains to pass from Queens Plaza to Grand Central Station.

East Side Access provides new LIRR service to the east side of Manhattan, supplementing existing service to Penn Station on the west side of Manhattan and Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn. This project includes work in several locations in Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx and includes over eight miles of tunneling.

West Babylon, NY – PRI has built and delivered its final motor generator (MG) system required for the Long Island Rail Road’s (LIRR) Port Jefferson Line MG Replacement project. The MG system, which was sent to Port Jefferson station, will be wired and ready for load bank testing in roughly four weeks.

PRI’s scope for this LIRR project was to design and build three MG systems for the Greenlawn, Smithtown, and Port Jefferson stations. The systems for Greenlawn and Smithtown have already been delivered, installed and commissioned, and are now supplying power to the LIRR Port Jefferson branch.

West Babylon, NY – PRI has completed fabrication and testing of the new SCADA cabinets to be used along the Long Beach Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) branch from Long Beach Station to Valley Stream as part of the LIRR Long Beach SCADA project. The new SCADA System will allow for better/quicker review and control of the tracks, interlockings, and grade/street crossings along the Long Beach Branch.

The new cabinets are currently being delivered and installed at their final locations, which include the Jamaica Control Center (Jamaica, Queens), Lead Tower (Long Beach), and Valley Tower (Valley Stream). Installation and cutover of the new system is expected to be done April 2021.

The Long Beach Supervisory Control System (LBSCS) consists of two subsystems: The Central Traffic Control (CTC) and the LAN. The CTC System is being implemented using the Dispatch X Platform, and the LAN is being implemented using commercial off the shelf (COTS) hardware.

West Babylon, NY – PRI is provisioning and integrating new PLC cabinets as a part of the Long Island Rail Road Ocean Avenue Substation project.

The new cabinets will include an MG PLC cabinet, AC and DC Switchgear cabinets, Pilot Wire cabinets, and others to power/energize the third rail for trains travelling across the Babylon branch near Rockville Center Station.

The construction of a 3rd track from Floral Park to Hicksville is being undertaken to reduce train congestion and delays and enable true bidirectional service during peak hours with a more reliable rail network. This transformative work includes several related projects including the construction of up to 5 parking garages, retaining walls, improvements to rail bridges and the removal of 7 street-level grade crossings.

PRI Inc. will be furnishing, testing, and installing a brand new Motor Generator System as well as a Mobile Substation for the LIRR to use along this line. For more project information, also see the official LIRR Project Page at http://www.amodernli.com/project/thirdtrack/.

Here at PRI, we are now involved in two aspects of the 3rd Track Expansion Project. We have already started to furnish, test, and install an updated SCADA System for use along the Nassau and Queens Tracks in an ambitious effort to finish this massive project on time in 2022.

West Babylon, NY — PRI has finished furnishing, installing, and programming the new SCADA system at Divide Tower for the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR). Seventeen RTUs have also been installed and programmed after Hicksville Station along the Port Jefferson and Ronkonkoma lines.

Shown above is the SCADA system PRI created, which was installed at Divide Tower.

The upgrade allows for easier train control by LIRR supervisors over the Ronkonkoma and Port Jefferson lines. This will decrease the number of delayed trains for peak and off-peak commuters every day along this line. Tracking and communication will also be exponentially quicker and easier as a result of the new SCADA and RTUs.
