Working With Colas Rail

E&P CP5 S&C South Alliance

RJ Power Group have successfully completed a number of ETE Projects in Kent, Sussex and Wessex on behalf of Colas Rail.

The projects which formed part of Colas Rail’s S&C Framework on Network Rail’s Southern area, allowed RJ Power Group to provide either resources, or a full turnkey ETE solution.

Project Deliverables

RJ Power Rail’s work scope for the project consisted of the following deliverables:

  • Supply and Installation of SMOS Pallet interconnecting Bus Bar Structure
  • Installation and Interconnection of 25kV HV Cabling between SMOS Pallets and OLE Structures
  • Installation and Interconnection of LV control wiring between SMOS Pallet Marshalling Cubicles and MPTSL
  • Undertaking of additional Electrical and Mechanical Installations
  • Installation, Interconnection and Testing of DNO supply to MPTSL
  • Supply, Installation and Testing of Fibre connections for SCADA comms
  • Testing & Pre-commissioning of LV and HV equipment

Challenges & Solutions

RJ Power Group were faced with challenges on-site through receiving late design changes, delays to programmes and rail road vehicle issues, however our team worked collaboratively alongside Colas Rail and other contractors to meet the deadlines of each possession.

By having fully equipped vehicles with all the necessary plant and material spares to cover all aspects of an ETE installation, allowed RJ Power Group to provide an extremely efficient service, particularly when dealing with the last minute changes to the scope of works, that arose on this railway infrastructure project.

The Benefits

RJ Power Group absorbed and managed effectively the project risks, fully owning the power deliverables, delivering the project with minimal support and providing a seamless and integrated service into Colas Rail.

By holding a directly employed workforce RJ Power Group, were able to flex their resource to meet project change without affecting the key possession times. RJ Power Group provided internal commissioning resource through to installation, labour staff and a strong management team.

RJ Power Group have developed themselves over the years into a complete delivery team, with a huge range of experience and knowledge amongst our staff. This enabled RJ Power Group to cover the complete spectrum of all ETE projects awarded to them.
