Railway infrastructure service provider RT-Infrastructure Solutions (RT-IS) has launched a new Electrification & Plant (E&P) division to bolster its range of dedicated services for UK rail networks.

RT-IS’s new E&P offering means it can now provide a range of services in the HV and LV engineering disciplines, including the design of new Class II signalling power supplies systems and associated Principal Supply Points (PSPs) and the installation and maintenance of Cable Smart Monitoring in accordance with NR/L2/SIGELP/27725.

 The company can now also offer further LV engineering services including:

• Points heating
• Buffer stop lights
• Walkway and station lighting
• Load monitoring
• SIN119
• All LV surveys
• Earthing and bonding

The new E&P division will complement RT-IS’s existing service provision, which includes Signalling & Telecoms, Infrastructure Support, Labour Provision and wider Project Management and Delivery.

It will be headed up by Gavin Toms, RT-IS’s E&P Engineering Manager, who brings more than 10 years’ experience of a vast array of multi-disciplinary projects across a range of Network Rail infrastructure covering Electrical, Signalling, Civils and OLE Bonding projects.

For more than 25 years, RT-IS has offered safe and reliable solutions to the UK rail industry. It has since grown to become one of the UK’s leading providers of railway infrastructure services.

RT-IS has been expanding its growing portfolio of projects on Britain’s railways and recently delivered new signalling facilities at Beckton Depot to assist Buckingham Group in a £35m project to support new trains on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR). Last year the firm was also awarded a prestigious Network Rail Front Line Labour Contract for the supply of S&T staff over an eight-year period.

Discussing the launch of the new E&P division, RT-IS Managing Director, Andy Thorpe said: “This new division is an exciting development for RT-IS as we further expand our offering in our aim to become the partner of choice for projects on UK rail infrastructure.

“Our multi-skilled offering means we have the capabilities to provide any services required for UK rail enhancement projects, be it signalling and telecoms, construction and civils, cable routing, pre-fabrication and assembly of location cases, testing and commissioning or wider project management, we can provide a solution.”
