Electrification and Plant Works

This procurement route enables Electrification and Plant (E&P) activities to immediately benefit from an established collaborative delivery model. Site investigations, surveys and design development and interfaces are carefully and progressively assessed and managed. Early supply chain involvement and their integration into the entire process guarantees more effective and efficient solutions. The alignment and co-ordination of E&P activities with other asset work enables greater flexibility and efficiency in planning and possession utilisation.    

Our E&P team deliver the full range of power and plant upgrades and renewal.. Early consultation with specialist providers reduces risk when designing, planning and installing new supplies, extending existing supplies, and undertaking power upgrades.

When carrying out Electric Track Equipment and Electrical Track Maintenance works, our specialist supply partners collaborate to develop the design and efficiently install plant. Maintaining safe operation of the railway and keeping passengers moving is always at the forefront of design, planning and delivery.

Substation testing and commissioning are particularly important with power upgrades. Ensuring wheels are free from the tracks, sometimes over considerable distances, can be challenging.

Our in-house possession planners proactively liaise with all parties to gain the necessary possession distances and our team manage every possession to ensure we hand back on time.
