Electrification

Balfour Beatty offers a wide range Overhead Line and Traction Power Supply equipment covering:

  • Supply of our own electrification steelwork products designed in house
  • Sourcing and supply of third party products
  • In-house manufacturing for fabricated steelwork.

We supply fully traceable new materials and spares to OLE and Traction Power maintenance organisations, contractors and direct to clients such as Network Rail and the Tram and Metro operators in the UK as well as international clients in Europe, Scandinavia, SE Asia, Africa, the Americas and Australia.

We are able to develop consignment stock proposals in conjunction with our clients, thus enabling them to meet urgent demands and timescales for both maintenance and project works.

Our business is managed using our in-house computerised material control system (MCS) to ensure a comprehensive control over the supply from design allocation, authority to purchase, procurement, inspection, receipt at warehouse or site, issue into construction and surplus items returned to store. This provides assured supply information and control for the whole duration of a project or order beginning at the design allocation of materials through the production of a fully priced bill of materials, with the facility breaking down assemblies to sub-assemblies and components. This provides for more cost effective purchasing and control and much easier and assured management of change on site when materials have to be re-allocated to other work areas to accommodate change introduced by others.

Materials are procured and inspected with full traceability of each individual item through to the expediting of our suppliers. We provide a full shipping and delivery service including insurance, bills of landing and letters of credit management and any further documentation that our clients may require.
