Abengoa is awarded a Silver Site for a rail project in the United Kingdom

October 30, 2017

  • The award is from Network Rail, the leading railway infrastructure manager in the United Kingdom.

October 30, 2017 – Abengoa (MCE: ABG/P:SM), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the infrastructures, energy and water sectors, through a Joint Venture (AIJV) of its subsidiary company Abengoa Inabensa and the English company Amey, has received Silver Site recognition, under the Route to Gold initiative that is promoted by Network Rail (NWR), the leading railway infrastructure manager in the United Kingdom.

The Route to Gold initiative was set up in 2015 and measures and promotes the good performance of suppliers on their projects. The scoring system considers aspects such as collaborative work, quality, safety and continuous improvement in the railway sector, and scores are assigned by project managers at NWR. 

The award was received as a result of work in the railway sector on the Great Eastern Main Line project, in which the Amey - Abengoa Inabensa consortium is currently carrying out in the country. It consists of the installation of a new 2x25kV Bealieu ATFS railway track feeder substation that will replace the existing Springfield feeder substation, although it will operate in classic mode 1x25kV. Due to the power increase, the catenary and the return have also needed to be upgraded and extended six km. The project will increase installed power in this area in order to open the way to and from the east of England for trains in the Crossrail project.

Abengoa is presently a 5-star supplier in the railway sector of the United Kingdom which is the maximum score awarded in the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS). This is thanks to audit findings that an independent body conducts each year on the company’s quality, environment and safety and health systems.
