VolkerFitzpatrick appointed GBR-Rail when it needed highly efficient waste management services and fuel systems.

The contract was for VolkerFitzpatrick’s client Hitachi Rail Europe Ltd and its North London, Bristol and Swansea depots, and was a key element of the new InterCity Express Programme.

This included bespoke equipment for the servicing of trains water and replenishment, toilet emptying and fuel systems.

GBR-Rail provided a complete design and installation service for each depot.

All equipment was fully tested and commissioned to ensure it met the strict contractual specifications.

Paul Lilley, operations director for rail depots at VolkerFitzpatrick, said: “Working in partnership with GBR-Rail, our one-team approach was critical in the successful delivery of these rail depot projects.”
