Large sheds within train maintenance depots ensure vital work can be completed on the rolling stock. We were commissioned by Network Rail to replace two overhead cranes at the depot, which required significant planning and cooperation between all parties.
An integral part of daily operations at the depots are the overhead cranes. These cranes require maintenance and upgrades to ensure daily operations can continue.
When two of East Midlands Trains' overhead cranes needed replacing, then, DSEC were put to task. Specialist companies were enlisted to work with our team to ensure we met our objectives, including a dedicated lifting company, and crane engineers. The workforce was overseen by DSEC representatives, and the operation – which ran for six weeks – required daily interaction and updates with key Network Rail and East Midlands trains employees.

Thanks to the dedicated work of our team, the removal of the two cranes was completed on programme, with the replacements installed without incident, and to the required high standard. Planned work in the depot could then be completed, without any unnecessary delays or interruptions.Back to all rail projects
