Wessex Power Supply Upgrade, DC Traction Substations

Wessex Power Supply Upgrade (WPU) awarded Antagrade contracts for the complete installation testing and commissioning of sixteen new DC traction substations.

With our proven record in successful integration of new equipment within the operational railway environment the work also included those sites advised by Network Rail as being Super-Critical to the delivery programme.

All sites included the provision and testing of Network Rail approved substation earthing systems.

Other work included the installation, testing and commissioning of the remote end protection equipment (differential and rectifier frame leakage) at 48 sites including Grid Feeder and TPH conversion sites.
