East Ham and Ilford depots

Introduction

Make an Enquiry

The railway depots at East Ham and Ilford are close neighbours, and both play a crucial role in East London’s transport network.  East Ham EMU Depot sits just off the London, Tilbury and Southend line, which runs out of London Fenchurch Street, between East Ham and Barking stations.  Ilford depot, meanwhile, is placed nearby on the main line out of London Liverpool Street, through East London to the Essex coast.  When the ageing boilers at these depots were due to be replaced, Emico was engaged by Linbrook to remove and dispose of the redundant boilers at both depots, including both the amenity and shed boiler rooms at East Ham.  Emico then installed new boilers, controls, BMS and ancillary equipment.

There were some critical issues to deal with on this project: the depot had to be kept operational during the works, and; the mobilisation time for the project was extremely short.  Emico procured, installed, tested and commissioned the new boilers and systems for both depots. Meanwhile, at East Ham, we did the same for new plant and equipment required to deal with hydraulic expansion.  Some of the installations we carried out included: a new 2.5MW boiler with Dunphy Burners, new gas train and pipework; a 5000 litre self-levelling expansion vessel with internal sensors, and pressurisation unit; high temperature hot water pumps with inverters and an expansion vessel, and; Wilo primary circulation pumps, dirt separator and expansion.  Emico removed and disposed of the redundant boilers at both depots, including both the amenity and shed boiler rooms at East Ham.

With the new equipment installed and working, the crews at these vital depots were free to concentrate on keeping the railways running
