As the first company to introduce the Kirow rail mounted crane into the UK and being one of the few contractors with a rail safety case to run plant on the mainline railways, we are a market leader in rail plant supply.
VolkerRail has the flexibility to meet a wide variety of client needs, from single visit plant-only spot hires to multi-year supplier, maintainer and operator frameworks.
Our equipment is also supported by our in-house operator/maintainers who have undergone extensive training and are considered some of the best in the country, receiving regular commendations for their safe, flexible and professional approach.
Our modern on track plant and road rail fleet includes:
We also offer a range of small plant and equipment for use in repair, maintenance, construction and renewals of heavy and light rail infrastructure, all of which are specially designed and built for low noise and vibration, significantly reducing the likelihood of HAV problems for operators.
Our specialist plant team can also provide a fully integrated planning service. Our skilled and experienced engineers advise on equipment requirements, crane lifts, access routes, machine operations and the most effective methodology; including adjacent line opening works (ALO).
VolkerRail was awarded the Rail Plant and Equipment Team of the Year at Saturday’s RailStaff Awards.
Network Rail has appointed VolkerRail as the operator and maintainer for its new Kirow KRC 1200 crane.
VolkerRail has made a significant investment to its plant division with the purchase of eight new road/rail vehicles.
