Network Rail awards £417 million electrification frameworks

Network Rail has awarded £417 million of frameworks covering electrical renewals and upgrades on routes in Kent, Sussex and Wessex over the next five years.

 

McNicholas Construction has won two of the packages under Network Rail’s Electrification and Plant Frameworks for electrical renewals and upgrades on routes in Kent, Sussex and Wessex, worth an estimated £100 million over the five year control period CP5, covering most of the electrical renewal and upgrade work in the region.

 

Siemens has been awarded a £192 million contract for substations and High Voltage Maintenance Services has a £65 million package worth £65 million for substations work. BCM Construction has been awarded a £60 million package for work on high voltage feeders. McNicholas’ packages are £60 million for high voltage feeders and £40 million for ‘other electrical’ work.

 

The general electrification and plant framework includes enhancement of 750V DC track feeder cables and along-track positive cables, substation rewires, renewal of impedance protection relays, lighting renewal, earth farms, signalling power, points heating and other fixed plant assets services.

 

The high voltage feeders work includes refurbishment or replacement of feeder cables between substations, replacing oil filled cables with new 33kV cabling, renewing pilot cables and installing optical fibre telecommunication cables.

 

McNicholas Construction Chief Executive Barry McNicholas said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured these two long term frameworks with Network Rail and we are committed to deliver the value that has been promoted throughout the procurement process working collaboratively with the client team. These two awards further cement our position as a key supplier to Network Rail.”
