Power, heating and cooling for rail projects


Keeping efficiency on-track

Whether it’s minimising disruption or maximising operational efficiency, temporary rail power and temperature control can help deliver successful planned projects and emergency responses. With nationwide coverage and a wealth of experience in the rail industry, our solutions are just the ticket. Key rail applications we deliver include everything from trackside rail power, signalling refurbishment and sub-station electrification upgrades to station construction, backup power and disaster recovery.

Trusted rail power and cooling partner

With a comprehensive range of rail power generators, heating and cooling equipment, you can be sure that we have the fleet capabilities to support the rail network’s vast array of assets, buildings and infrastructure.

From diesel generators to hybrid power units , containerised generators to chillers and dehumidifiers.  We also have a range of specialist voltage power packages you can hire that are specially designed for rail operators, including 400V AC, 850V AC , 750V DC and high voltage. All ready to be installed. 

We can provide a full system that’s ready to go as soon as it’s delivered, using portable generators, transformers, rectifiers, UPS systems, and all the necessary cable and distribution panels. So, even in locations where electrification of the network is still some way off, you can operate efficiently and safely.
