Arcadis, Linxon and SSE Contracting come together to power Britain’s railways

February 25, 2021

We are entering a time of great change for the railways. COVID-19 apart, the industry is on a journey to a cleaner, greener future. Network Rail is working towards achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 (2045 in Scotland) and delivering continual improvements to air quality. 

In a unique move for the industry, and a bid to offer that one-stop solution, a powerful consortium involving Arcadis, Linxon and SSE Contracting has been established to power up a greener and more effective railway, delivering the HV solution as one. Robin Tunley, SSE Contracting’s Programme Director Major Projects, said: “A safe and reliable high voltage power supply is a vital part of the UK railways plans for a cleaner, greener future and keeping the network running safely and reliably.

“Collectively we’ve seen an opportunity to come together as one to create strength in unity and a powerful consortium with complimentary skills which can only be good for the industry.”

“As Arcadis, Linxon and SSE Contracting we offer different but complementary services, and we all share the same vision in playing our part to work together to power the railways in an efficient and safe manner and in doing so tackling climate change.”

Rail is already the cleanest and greenest mode for transporting large numbers of people and goods, but as an industry we are committed to cutting carbon footprints even further.
