Scarborough Depot Open for Maintenance

In preparation for the introduction of a brand new fleet of ‘Nova 3’ trains to the network, Kemada were appointed as the preferred M&E contractor to design and construct a new train depot facility in Scarborough.

Commercial & Industrial

Kemada have successfully completed a full mechanical and electrical design and build scheme at Scarborough; a brand new £8 million train depot facility capable of carrying out light maintenance, refuelling and tanking whilst also providing interior carriage cleaning and stabling, controlled emission toilets (CET), welfare and storage facilities. The full extent of Kemada’s design & installation responsibility included:

  • Depot Shore Supply Systems
  • Bulk Storage & Fueling Systems
  • Controlled Emission Toilets (CET)
  • Potable Water Supplies
  • Surface Water Drainage Management c/w Attenuation
  • OWI systems
  • Pumping Stations & Control Systems
  • HV/LV Distribution Power & Full Depot Lighting Systems
  • CCTV, Security & Access Control Systems

With the project being delivered to a very condensed programme along with construction challenges throughout the build period, Kemada maintained our focus on delivering a first class quality project on time. Through collaborative working with our customer Graham Construction, the project has proved a huge success and will now play an important role in transforming rail travel for customers in the region whilst also creating 15 new jobs to help manage the facility and service the trains.

The full installation was undertaken, tested and commissioned with Kemada directly employed engineers & operatives. The outstanding quality of the mechanical and electrical installation works is testament to all the hard work and effort the entire project team put in to this prestigious project. A 5-Star rating to match our recent Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) audit.
