The Challenges and 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.
