RAIL

Enable Infrastructure (formerly known as BCM Construction) and our Enable Power Systems teams have more than 30 years’ experience in the rail sector. In fact, Enable Power Systems have played some part in almost every major power upgrade on UK railways over the past 20 years, mostly involving High Voltage distribution. 

We are a Principal Contractor for Network Rail and Transport for London and hold numerous accreditations – including NICEIC, ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 and Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) five-star rating. 

Much of our rail work involves infrastructure projects in live safety-critical environments. Facilitated by our in-house staff with Level A, B & C competence, we have delivered highly complex HV & DC traction and non-traction substation / track parallelling hut renewals. These included installation of HV Switchgear 11-33Kv and DC Switchgear 750v.  

We have installed and commissioned various 25KV HV Feeder cable systems for new OLE upgrade projects, providing required resilience for Network Rail infrastructure. This includes the UK’s longest Network Rail feeder cable (22.5km).
