Network Rail sought to procure a reliable and suitable power solution for their Roberts Road depot in Doncaster as the existing on-site generator was of poor quality and sufficient services were not provided.


Following a site visit, Wernick Power Solutions was selected due to their professional approach and high-quality products.

Full in-house turnkey products and services were offered to the client, including the supply of a containerised Voltstore®, cables, lighting as well as full management of the installation process.

Wernick Power Solutions was able to retrofit two existing units to give them lighting. This meant that Wernick fitted each store with its own consumer unit and LED strip lights, making the units safer and easily accessible to those working on-site in the evening.

Despite some challenges, including the lack of mains power on-site, the Wernick Power team provided a safe and secure facility. Work included converting stores into power units and installing interior and exterior lighting to workspaces, the entrance, and pedestrian walkways.

Client Comment

Nick Lunn, Stores Manager at Roberts Road depot commented: “The Wernick Power Solutions team has covered all the safety aspects required with accesses and cabin lighting. The team were very helpful and did everything they said they would. The generator service crew are always polite and prompt with their services and have always been able to sort all problems. We are now running our stores site a lot more safely and efficiently with savings on costs as well.”
