Framework for Maintenance and Replacement of Mechanical and Electrical Systems

Global Rail Services secured a four-year framework with Irish Rail to provide maintenance and renewal, of the mechanical and electrical systems and services at 400No railway stations throughout Ireland.

Having submitted a most compelling tender, Global Rail Services, have delivered, tested and commissioned over €2.6m of mechanical and electrical works to date.

The works, which include both planned and un-planned maintenance and renewal, also relied upon Global Rail Services registration with an authorised Electrical Safety Supervisory Body (ESSB) and their registration and compliance with both The Energy Act 2006 and the Commission of Energy Regulation (CER).

The Dublin based business, is also an RGI registered mechanical installer and is completing PPMW works as per NSAI SR50 – 1:2010 Code of Practise for building services – Part 1 Domestic plumbing & heating systems, implementing all UARW works in compliance with IE

Specification for Mechanical Installations 10/SP-005 and service all existing gas filled air cooling systems as per BS-EN 15240 – Air Conditioning Systems.

By appointing Global Rail Services in the roles of Project Supervisor Design Process (PSDP) and Project Supervisor Construction Stage (PSCS), Irish Rail were able to ensure that the works would be managed in full compliance with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2006.

A vastly experienced in-house mechanical and electrical engineering team, has allowed Global Rail Services to provide resources to fulfil these roles and deliver an emergency call-out service which meets the two-hour response window.
