Swansea Maliphant Intercity Express Depot (Hitachi)


Expertise: OLE
Value: £750k

Pod-Trak were contracted to supply and install all the OLE (excluding contact wire) required to electrify the Hitachi operated depot at Swansea.

Works including the supply and installation of transfer plates, structures, SPS, Headspans, Switching and Bonding. The installation of the contact wire was omitted from the scope to reduce the risk of theft as the Depot will not go live until the Great Western Electrification reaches Swansea in 2019. Works also included the installation of structures along the NWR Mainline.With careful planning and communication between Pod-Trak, the client and Hitachi, the depot remained operational throughout the installation programme.
