Service and Maintenance

L. C. Switchgear Ltd can provide full after installation servicing and maintenance for ours and others products and equipment.

Our engineers are Network Rail PTS and LUL-ICI trained, as well as various Depot inductions.

We have a wealth of experience and in most cases can mobilise very quickly to suite your needs.

We also offer an On-Call Reactive Maintenance Service to help keep critical systems operational.

Here are some examples of our recent maintenance works:

LUL Upminster Depot DC Shore Supply Maintenance

LCS were recently asked by LUL to perform maintenance on the DC shore supply equipment at Upminster Depot. LCS were able to attend on short notice.

The system comprises of LCS equipment built and installed over the last few years. Everything was maintained from the Track Isolation Switches and Exam Road Contactor Panels to the EPO panels and DDMs Mimic panel.

All of this equipment was maintained and put back into service over three evening shifts. We aim to work around you and keep service disruption to a minimum.

Govia Thameslink (Southern) Railway Traction Supply Maintenance Contract

LCS have for approximately 10 years held a maintenance contract to maintain and service the traction supply equipment at various Southern Depots, including Selhurst and Brighton.

This planned preventative maintenance is performed every 6 to 12 months depending upon the equipment. We maintain our own panels as well as other manufacturers.

As part of this service we do not just maintain the equipment but constantly look for problems which have or could develop over time. We engineer and retrofit solutions, helping to keep Southern Rail operational.

We also perform an On-Call reactive maintenance service. Two engineers are available 24/7 to attend Southern depots within 2-4 hours.

Ludgate Cellars Substation Contactor Suite Maintenance

The PLC controlled contactor suite at Ludgate Cellars, designed, built and installed by LCS is extremely critical for the continuous safe operation of the Thameslink Railway. LCS have performed 6 monthly maintenance on the system since installation.

NSCD Modifications

Network Rail recently asked LCS to modify our NSCD panels and associated Local Control Panels already installed track side. Working closely with UKPNs and HVMS the Local Control Panels have been modified to provide an even greater level of safety for workers.

Whilst the product range consists of switchgear which requires little maintenance, regular servicing will extend the life of your products.
