Central Scotland’s Railways

Working with contractor, ABC, PACE Networks delivered rail electrification to the Stirling-Dunblane-Alloa project, under the management of Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP). Following on from the electrification of Rutherglen to Coatbridge section, Omnia prevailed over the competition by demonstrating superior whole life costs and improved safety through significantly less time working at height.

The Omnia cantilever’s alloy construction provides a 40% weight reduction over standard cantilevers. Omnia facilitated significant cost savings, providing simple geometry and reach adjustments while reducing the number of tools required from 5 to 2, significant components from 12 to 5, and the number of nuts from 30 to 6.

The first section of the Stirling-Dunblane-Alloa (SDA) electrification project covers 26 single track kilometres between Greenhill, Larbert and Polmont junctions and includes Falkirk Grahamston and Camelon stations. Due for completion on schedule in December 2018, phase two extends the route through to Dunblane in the north and Alloa in the east, with an additional 2,000 Omnia cantilevers completing the route length of 150 single track kilometres.

PACE Networks, working in partnership with Bonomi and ABC, provided project support and Omnia cantilevers. The project successfully trialled PACE Network’s lean and flexible ordering process and by warehousing Omnia cantilevers in sub-assembly form, the customer experienced increased flexibility, less risk when ordering against incomplete design and streamlined stock management.
