Serco Rail Technical Services

We are a leading Rail consultancy and supplier of technical services to the industry. Our services include non destructive testing, metallurgy, vehicle and infrastructure testing, commissioning, specialist data management, safety and risk management, asset management and rail engineering. We also manage and operate the 21km Old Dalby Test Track. Through our services we extend asset life, and verify and validate vehicles and infrastructure. We investigate service problems and develop solutions that reduce the cost of operations, inspection and maintenance. We aim to help our customers be successful. We do this by drawing on our specialist rail engineering and operations knowledge and bringing it to bear on our customers? business challenges. We look for rail customers with whom we can have a long term relationship and help them achieve real success. Our customers come first and we are committed to working with them to help them develop their business and improve its competitiveness. It is our belief that success comes from focusing on customers and staff and treating them fairly. We recruit, train and continually develop our rail people, ensuring that they can provide high quality independent advice and services.

We help our customers improve safety performance and meet their safety compliance needs. This covers all aspects of Safety certificates and authorisations, safety planning and assessment, risk and reliability management, audit and incident investigation. This includes both the engineered elements of the transport system and the human factors associated with passengers, staff and members of the public. We help our clients optimise the performance of their vehicle and track assets against capital and operational expenditure constraints. We advise on strategy and the implementation of best practice asset management systems and decision support tools that improve the company’s bottom line. Through our Raildata team we provide asset data management services and products. We provide assurance that our clients’ vehicles and track meet performance and safety requirements. We also investigate problems, extend asset life and reduce costs of operation, inspection and maintenance. Our vehicle engineers provide turnkey solutions for vehicle rectification and maintenance. Rolling stock testing through our Railtest team has been a core part of our business since the privatisation of the rail industry. This is supported by world class materials, non destructive testing, structural integrity, modelling, testing expertise and facilities.
