Global Rail Services announces third Irish Rail contract award in quick succession
Global Rail Services is delighted to announce it has been awarded another contract with Irish Rail as part of its Mechanical and Electrical framework agreement.
The project specifically consists of works at Irish Rail’s Dublin Connolly Railway Station to upgrade the station’s boiler systems. The existing life expired oil-fired heating boilers will be replaced with new modulating gas units, and the plant rooms will be refurbished and fitted with gas and fire detection systems.
The Plant room refurbishment will involve the installation of new radiator units, pipework and all associated mechanical, electrical and associated builder works in connection. The works will also require careful management of various stakeholder requirements during the works, to ensure that the programme is fully co-ordinated to meet the requirements of station staff and passengers.
Aidan Kelly, M&E Manager at Global Rail Services, said: “This is the latest in a trio of significant contract wins for us on the Irish Rail M&E framework, and further solidifies our excellent relationship with this very important client.
“The boiler replacement scheme at Dublin Connolly Station will require a full turnkey delivery solution from our experienced in-house M&E team, and will be a challenging project to complete, requiring us to utilise a full range of our in-house capabilities.
“This is a very exciting period for the business as we are celebrating multiple contract awards in such a short space of time, which is a testament to our growing reputation in the rail industry.”
Works on the project are currently underway and are due for completion by the end of October 2017.
