Critical Electrical Infrastructure

Critical Electrical Infrastructure Contract Award


Simon Dean have been awarded the contract for the installation of Critical Electrical Infrastructure for Network Rail.

Through competitive tender we have been awarded the contract for design and implementation. This will see us install electrical infrastructure works at Piccadilly Station, Manchester and Lime Street Station, Liverpool.

The works form part of Network Rail’s, Project Alpha, which is designed to ensure the resilience of key railway stations.

As a result, we have already designed one system from F001 to Foo3 approval. This has allowed us to order specified products for the completion of this electrical infrastructure delivery project. Some of which have 4 week lead time. Our second design submission is pending approval by Network Rail.

Our design team have been working to ensure the delivery of a high quality detailed proposal at speed. Producing in house CAD drawings and specifications has allowed us to focus resources for this time sensitive delivery.

This contract will see the Simon Dean team form an integral part of the ‘Orange Army’ over the Christmas 2020 shutdown of the rail network. At this time key infrastructure projects are undertaken to minimise the disruption to rail passengers.

Stand-By Generator Connection points will be installed and interlinked into the existing electrical infrastructure. This will enable emergency power solutions to be provided in the event of a power failure.

Our electrical and civils in house teams will be working within the tight timescale. With 7 weeks from contract award to handover a well managed delivery will be the secret to success.
