Electrification and Plant Works
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. On the Reading 10 Car scheme we upgraded 6 substations as part of the wider platform extensions for the new 10 car trains.
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.
The critical experience that Osborne brings to rail possessions is the ability to deliver to tight deadlines and work collaboratively with asset owners, operators and specialists. Success is the result of careful planning and effective teamwork.
