Network Rail Hire Wakefield Firm

16 November 2015

DrainsAid, the specialist drainage and sewer rehabilitation division of Peter Duffy Ltd, has successfully secured a two year contract with Network Rail for the management of the company’s septic tank assets on the London North West (LNW) route.

The Wakefield-based company will now assist the railway maintenance specialists with planned and reactive drainage services for Network Rail assets throughout the region, including sites in remote and challenging locations.

Jason Monaghan, Sales Manager at DrainsAid, said:

“We have been selected to provide this important service largely due to our ‘asset management’ approach and the use of innovative field-base technology which allows our engineers to provide real-time reporting and photographs.

“Our key priorities are to provide a safe well-managed service which reduces unnecessary costs and minimises potential disruption to train services.“

DrainsAid’s use of the latest mobile field-base technology means that the septic tank service is managed much more effectively in comparison to previous methods.

The company invests in a lot of innovative industry technology, including the new M-Coating manhole rehabilitation system which alongside the mobile field-base technology has attracted a lot of interest from existing and prospective customers alike.

“It’s crucial to our future success that we keep investing in ground-breaking technology to ensure that we can provide our prestigious client base with market-leading drainage services,“ added Jason. “Engineers are extensively trained on new equipment, and what’s more, all engineers and supervisors involved with our rail industry works have the Personal Track Safety (PTS) training, a safe working practice designed to ensure the safety of railway workers and those who have to work on or near a railway line.“
