Case Studies

Engineering Support for East Midlands Railway

East Midlands Railway are upgrading its ageing intercity fleet.

However, with design approvals presenting a greater challenge than expected, the Joint Project Manager required additional support to manage the technical activities to ensure compliance with specified requirements.

Planning Support for Operational Testing for West Midlands Trains

West Midlands Trains introduced a new fleet of class 196 units to replace their oldest diesel trains.

They required additional planning support to facilitate the operational testing of these new units, so they engaged Encompass Engineering to help.

Enhancing Asset Management for Rock Rail’s Class 717 Fleet

Rock Rail owns a fleet of 25 Class 717 units that has been serving passengers since 2019.

To protect their assets, Rock Rail wanted an independent specialist team to conduct inspections on these Siemens units - from both the physical unit and maintenance perspective. The project would provide insight into whether or not agreed-upon maintenance procedures were being adhered to.

Rail Noise & Vibration Research Project for the RSSB

The Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) were tasked with developing a Sustainable Rail Blueprint.

The objective was to help those in the rail industry manage noise and vibration and they needed specialist support with the Quieter Railway Piece - so they engaged Encompass Engineering to help.

A Route Cause Analysis for West Midlands Trains

Experiencing persistent issues with tool calibration, West Midlands Trains sought to identify the issue, prevent future instances and bring them in line with required standards.

They wanted a fresh perspective and expert support, so they engaged Encompass Engineering to perform a comprehensive GEMBA walk to identify potential challenges and opportunities.
