Malin Head and Johnstown Castle civil and electrical works

Global Rail Services Ltd in Ireland, has completed civil and electrical works in support of the installation of the new radiation monitoring equipment at Malin Head, Met Eireann, County Donegal and aerosol measurement units at Johnstown Castle EPA Headquarters, County Wexford.

At both locations, we constructed two concrete plinths and connected them to each other and to the office building via new ducting. We then delivered and installed a new mini pillar to connect the cabling to the new cabinets. This weighed 500kg and was lifted onto the larger concrete plinth using Global Rail Services Hiab lorry and secured in position using M12 bolts.

The team the installed 30m of electrical cable at Malin Head and 100m at Johnstown Castle from the office to the mini pillar. Inside the mini pillar, we mounted a small sub-distribution fuse board to supply local power. All electrical connections to switches and boards were carefully made with suitable materials. Furthermore, all external steelwork was correctly bonded to local earth electrodes.

This successful project illustrates Global Rail Services Ltd internal capabilities as a turnkey solution provider for multi-disciplinary civil and electrical projects on behalf of the EPA.

There were also a few minor additions that took place on this project for which Global Rail Services’ team seamlessly integrated in their role as both PSCS and PSDP.

The successful execution of this project is testament to Global Rail Services Ltd’s expertise, dedication and quality of workmanship.
