Global Rail Services awarded advertising lighting scheme as part of Irish Rail Mechanical & Electrical Framework Agreement
Global Rail Services has been awarded a contract to deliver a retrofit efficient lighting scheme to an extensive range of advertising displays for transport companies Irish Rail and Bus Eireann.
Both Irish Rail and Bus Eireann have an extensive range of advertising displays across their networks. The lightboxes are illuminated by fluorescent tubes and are mixture of single-sided, double-sided units and others with internal support bars.
Global’s in-house Mechanical and Electrical (M&E division) will provide a scheme consisting of the following services:
- Supply of alternative lighting package to convert the existing system to a low energy/low maintenance solution, whilst maintaining the existing illuminance levels.
- Supply of energy efficient (LED) luminaires to replace existing fluorescent tubes, while maximising light uniformity & colour vibrancy on the displayed posters.
- Installing the package at various locations using competent tradespersons including the Installation of new luminaires
- Removal and safe/legal disposal of existing lamps, ballasts and wiring looms from light boxes
The project is part of Global Rail Service’s Maintenance and Replacement of Mechnical and Electrical Systems framework collaboration with Irish Rail.
Aidan Kelly, who manages all M&E works undertaken by Global Rail Services, said: “Our team will deliver this challenging scheme across a large number of locations for the clients. It will result in an upgraded low energy and low maintenance solution which provides cost-savings while maximising light uniformity and colour vibrancy on the displayed posters.
“This contract win is another shining example of our M&E capabilities, and will help further develop our long-term partnership with Irish Rail.”
