Abengoa receives further recognition from Network Rail

December 1, 2017

  • The award is in recognition of works undertaken without accidents of any kind.

December 1, 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 further commendation from the client Network Rail (NWR), the leading infrastructure manager in the United Kingdom.

On this occasion, the award concerns the electrification works undertaken in the blockade works during a four-week period in the Badminton area, which is part of the Greater West Programme project, under the Railway division, which the Amey-Abengoa Inabensa consortium is currently working on in the country. 

The award was received as a result of the commitment, efforts and dedication that were evidenced during the 4-week consecutive cut which amounted to six twelve-hour shifts per week. In the course of the approximately 75,000 hours worked, a total of 488 foundation pillars were installed, 357 posts, 93 booms, 1,859  brackets and feeder hangers and 84 tension length runs were installed which is equivalent to 69 miles of line. All of these executed works have been undertaken without having to report any accidents of any kind, and therefore is in full compliance with Abengoa’s primary objectives in the area of Safety and Health at work. 

The project includes overhead contact line installation works which run from Maidenhead to Bristol and also entails the intermediate stations and branches to Newbury, Oxford and Chippenham.

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.
