Network Rail has awarded £350m of electrification and plant frameworks in southern England.
The five agreements, awarded by the company’s Infrastructure Projects Southern division, cover electrical renewals and upgrade works on the Kent , Sussex and Wessex routes over the next five years
The five framework contracts that have been awarded are:
HV Feeders – BCM Construction and McNicholas Construction Services
Substations – Siemens and High Voltage Maintenance Services
Other Electrical – McNicholas Construction Services
Network Rail said the frameworks were intended to help suppliers and project teams work closely to avoid peaks and troughs in the work and allow suppliers to invest in training.
McNicholas chief executive, Barry McNicholas, said: ”We are absolutely delighted to have secured these two long-term frameworks with Network Rail and we are committed to deliver the value that has been promoted throughout the procurement process working collaboratively with the client team. These two awards further cement our position as a key supplier to Network Rail”.
