Chalvey Substation

Substations and Railways

Although our actual rail industry experience is limited, over the past decade Beard has undertaken numerous projects that we believe are relevant to the type of works we are interested in within the rail sector.

Within both Substation work and Rail work, there are additional requirements for safety and safe working systems. Beard are able to ensure these stringent demands are met.

Our main area of works has been undertaken on Substations with our key customer being Scottish and Southern Electric. The majority of these projects have been refurbishments, which are a key area of work within rail construction contracts.

We are now a registered supplier with the Link-up qualification scheme.
