At its International Quarter site in London, Lendlease have developed a remotely operated cut-off system (ROCS) which provides the wireless remote shutdown of an excavator.
The ROCS system has been designed by Active Group Ltd and works at a range of up to 100m and encompasses a robust anti-theft capability.
On site, the ROCS system is operated by a subcontractor of Volker-Fitzpatrick Ltd. It allows the banksmen to have immediate control over the safe operation and activities conducted by an excavator. The banksmen have the option to cut the excavator’s power should they deem any further operation as unsafe. An example could be unknown services uncovered or an operative or pedestrian has wandered unknowingly into the area of operation.
