Overhead electrification, design and build

Our team has extensive experience in all aspects of railway electrification, including D.C. and A.C. overhead line electrification and rail contact systems for heavy and light railways, our understanding enables us to maximise rail availability while minimising disruption.

Keltbray’s leading electrification design house, Wentworth House Rail Systems, covers existing and new build railways and benefits from being part of a wider Keltbray consultancy capability, which specialises in structural, geo-technic and environmental engineering which support rail projects as required.

To complement the design capability, Keltbray Aspire/Electrification has one of the country’s largest project management and construction teams, for cost effective overhead line electrification installation, upgrades and maintenance services.

Our training and direct delivery model ensures the highest standards of safety and quality, and we are committed to securing and developing local labour using our locally established training centres. This strategy offers significant social and economic benefits, including the optimisation and development of local employment opportunities and skills, minimising costs and environmental impact, such as travel and carbon emissions.
