Electrical upgrade to improve energy efficiency at Stansted Mountfitchet and Newport rail stations complete

Wednesday, 13 January 2016

Abellio Greater Anglia has completed an electrical upgrade at Stansted Mountfitchet and Newport rail stations to make them more energy-efficient.


The train operator’s ‘Rewire, Relight’ project has seen every lighting unit on the platforms replaced with more energy-efficient ones and a complete rewiring at both stations.


New variable controls and automatic settings for the lighting will help to reduce electricity consumption and improve energy-efficiency, reducing the carbon footprint of both stations on the Cambridge - London route.


Abellio Greater Anglia’s Programme Delivery Manager, Simon Wilson, said, “The Rewire, Relight project is helping to create more energy-efficient stations and, at the same time, improve the station ambience and environment for passengers.”
