Kent Station, Cork

As part of Iarnród Éireann’s preparations for the introduction of the much-publicised Mark 4 Trains to Ireland, a new service platform was built in Kent Station, adjacent to the existing maintenance facility. Dornan was awarded the mechanical services contract by John Sisk & Son.

Responsibilities included

  • Supply and installation of all mechanical systems for train maintenance
  • Upgrading the plant serving the existing trains, in tandem with the new train servicing outlets
  • The new outlets were installed under a canopy between two platforms so the outlets can be accessed from both sides
