Traction and rolling stock

The railway industry is constantly challenged to improve performance, capacity and reliability. A detailed understanding of rolling stock, railway operations, and maintenance and depot design is required to deliver an optimized and robust operation.

Mott MacDonald is expert in all areas of railway infrastructure and interfaces, and in the management of vehicles and operations, providing a total railway system.

Mott MacDonald covers the whole range of rolling stock, including all types of passenger and freight vehicles, high speed units, metros, light rail and monorail projects. We are experts in all areas of railway infrastructure and interfaces, and in the management of vehicles and operations, providing a total railway system.

Key services include these:

  • Specification and procurement
  • Design and build
  • Operations
  • Maintenance and asset management
  • Maintenance depots

We provide a comprehensive technical and specialist rolling stock capability, covering all stages in the development and use of rolling stock from initial specification through procurement management, design review, project management, operations, maintenance and whole-life support.

In-depth experience

Mott MacDonald’s specialist rolling stock professionals draw upon many years of experience in manufacturing, maintenance, and operation, and provide strategic advice and engineering and operating solutions to a range of clients.

We work with our clients at the early stages of project development, when strategic business and commercial decisions are taken, in order to deliver efficient and effective solutions for the life of the project. Our team is experienced in undertaking key roles within a client’s project team and has worked on many major rolling stock procurement projects, from the inception of procurement through to delivery of the fleet.

Keeping fleets in top condition

It is vital for clients to be confident that they are in full control of the maintenance and condition of the fleet so that the quality of operation will not be compromised.

We provide an independent service to clients in this area, assisting them to create a stable and manageable program of asset renewal from the commencement of the service. Similarly, we can see that parties’ legal obligations are implemented for all aspects of operations and maintenance, which gives assurance to shareholders and other stakeholders.

Mott MacDonald also undertakes a range of services for depots and maintenance workshops including layout design, operations, and movements in depots including freight handling and environmental and compliance audits.
