Rail terminal projects range in scope from the design and project management of multimillion rand bulk loading facilities to rail access for industrial areas. Rail mainline projects vary from greenfields rail connections, to the re-alignment and up-grading of brownfields rail routes, including structures and tunnels.
Feasibility studies are usually multidisciplinary involving railway system design as well as investment planning and evaluation. Levels of detail range from concept through client driven investment phases to bankable feasibility. Detail design and implementation, traffic forecasting, flow optimisation, system capacity, railhead and logistics design as well as rolling stock strategy and application frequently form part of the scope.
Port planning and design services are provided from concept through detailed design of port master plans, terminal layouts, quay walls, jetties and related infrastructure. This includes the preparation of construction drawings, specifications, schedules and construction technical supervision.
Rail Operations encompasses the total railway operations planning function and include train service design, resource management and service execution planning. Studies involve the analysis and process design of rail logistics environments of varied levels of complexity, often supported by simulation. Rolling stock strategy, application and train design are also included.
All project management functionalities ranging from scheduling, construction supervision to full EPCM.
