Jet Aire completes major contract at railway site

Jet Aire Services has completed a major contract to carry out maintenance works underneath a rail line near Doncaster.


Jet Aire deployed a team of eight site engineers and four fleet vehicles operating at the north and south sides of the track to unblock and cleanse a 3m-diameter culvert prior to its decommissioning. Over the course of two weeks, the company’s Jet Vac units and JHL FlexLine 414 recyclers removed over 220 tonnes of waste. Jet Aire was subcontracted by a North East customer on behalf of Network Rail.


Jet Aire Managing Director, Charlie Kirk, said:


“Jet Aire’s investment in a fleet of recyclers enables us to meet the challenges involved in contracts of this nature. The FlexLine 414 uses recycling technology to cleanse and re-use water for jetting on site. It is 30% more powerful than standard equipment and ideal for de-silting, large diameter pipe cleaning and many of the most difficult industrial cleaning and waste removal tasks. Its energy-efficient technology reduces environmental impact and delivers a faster turnaround. There are only ten such vehicles in the UK and Jet Aire’s six units are the only ones based in the North."

“In recent years Jet Aire has been able to develop business growth in the transport infrastructure sector thanks to our qualification under the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme, which applies rigorous standards in its role as a supplier pre-qualification service. The scheme streamlines procurement and is used by buyers of all products and services throughout the UK’s rail industry, including Network Rail, Transport for London, passenger and freight operating companies, rolling stock organisations and main infrastructure contractors.”
