BACKGROUND – AN OVERVIEW OF THE CURRENT SITUATION

With the constant pressure to complete the Great Western Electrification Project, RSSI was approached to assist in delivering a cost effective solution to complete packages of work and hence allowing the projects main construction teams to progress along the routes.

SOLUTION

RSS Infrastructure Ltd (RSSI) was able to offer construction support to the GWEP programme by providing a package solution alongside our industry partners consisting of Safety Critical Staff, OLEC Staff (trainee linesman to handback engineer), Plant and all required tools and equipment.

Works ranged from packages of installation to snagging works to ensure that the programme was able to meet its deadlines for energisation.

CONCLUSIONS / RESULTS – WHAT BENEFIT WAS THIS FOR THE CLIENT

As a result of the works, RSSI has been able to ensure a good relationship with its clients by providing a tailored solution to every situation, with confidence to the client that the works are of the highest quality.
