RELOCATION OF RAIL ENGINEERING ACTIVITIES FROM NANTES-ETAT TO NANTES-BLOTTEREAU
The purpose of this project is nothing less than to restructure the management of the rail system.
The rail engineering activities (Freight and Major Track Operations (GOP)) previously based at the Nantes État Centre are being transferred to Nantes Blottereau.
Work package T03, which includes earthworks, the removal of rails and catenaries, mains drainage works, civil engineering for cables, water supply, fencing, catenary structural erection and temporary lighting, was awarded to us by SNCF Réseau, making this a 100% NGE consortium.
SNCF Réseau awarded this contract to NGE having been particularly impressed by the option to make maximum re-use of materials already on site and the Multi-expertise aspects of the tender.
