The sector is moving towards more sustainable travel that is better for the environment and quieter for passengers and those living close to the railway.

To help our clients achieve their goal of an electrified network that promotes cleaner, more reliable travel, we have tailored our approach to provide a full turnkey service.

For the installation, maintenance and renewal of overhead line electrification equipment, we offer support from early design stage, including ground investigations and lineside civils work, through to full install, test and commissioning of the electrification system. 

We offer:

  • Isolation planning and management
  • Power and switchgear installation
  • Steelwork erection
  • Bonding installation. 

Our teams are also familiar with all different types of catenary systems, can install overhead line componentry, and undertake height and stagger survey analysis and adjustments.

We have the skills needed to work across several of the UK’s public and private sector networks, including main line rail, branch lines, overground mass transit networks, depots and private industrial railways.

To complement our services, we also have an extensive fleet of specialist road rail machinery designed to work safely under overhead line infrastructure, and experienced piling teams that specialise in the installation of overhead line equipment and platforms, including the associated piled solutions where appropriate..

Our services are cost effective and professional, and can be offered as either a single discipline provider or as part of a multidisciplinary turnkey project.

We also offer high and low voltage power distribution, which you can read more on here.
