RJ Power Group teams up with Volker Fitzpatrick at Ilford depot

With a successful partnership with Volker Fitzpatrick in place, RJ Power Group secured a significant contract for signalling and power supplies (Stages 3-7) at Ilford Depot. This project forms part of Crossrail, one of the largest of its kind in Europe. RJ Power Group’s collaboration with Volker Fitzpatrick will see the creation of ten new sidings and a new building for train drivers and other rail staff.

Earlier this month, the team began work with Volker Fitzpatrick to complete electrical enabling works in preparation for the main improvement works planned to commence on 9th August 2016.

Works to date include:

  • the installation of temporary LV supplies to depot support buildings, including the yard controller’s office and mess rooms;
  • cable pulling, installation, termination and testing;
  • final testing and commissioning of portable building supplies.

Once the main works begin in August, we look forward to updating you further.

The expertise of Matt Woolley, Sales Director of RJ Power Group, was instrumental in securing the work for the Group. He commented: “It’s exciting to be involved in a project of this size and importance. Once complete, Ilford Depot will be one of the biggest yards for the Crossrail line. Our experienced rail engineering team is applying its power expertise and know-how to prepare the depot for completion, which will be crucial to the smooth running of future Crossrail services.”
