What are we currently working on?
We have awarded all of the prime system contracts for the Class 800/801 series trains which you will see on the downloads below. This has taken us to an exciting point in the project. The first systems have now all been delivered and we are actively moving within the test programme for the first trains entering service.
Our factory in the North East of England is nearing completion and we are now growing our workforce within the factory to meet our delivery timescales for the Class 800/801 series trains and future projects.
The production of trains will commence in the UK from 2016 which means we need to focus our efforts throughout 2015 on establishing our tier-two and extended supply base in order to deliver this exciting additional to the UK rail network. Our procurement team are also actively reviewing future supply opportunities and looking to tap into the excellent skills and expertise that exists within our supply base globally.
