Policy Requirements for Electrical Power Assets
|Publication Date:||4 March 2017|
This standard applies to the asset management of all EP assets. Certain clauses also apply to the introduction of new EP assets to the rail network
The purpose of the electrical power (EP) asset policy within Network Rail is to provide reliable and safe operation of the network to:
• Provide for the safety of employees, contractors, users of the infrastructure and third parties,
• Meet and maintain statutory obligations,
• Optimise the life and performance of assets and the network,
• Maintain quality of service by minimising disruption to customers.
This standard contains the specific requirements that enable the objectives set out above to be met. Prior to issue as this standard, the requirements were set out in Annex 1 - Policy implementation requirements and guidelines (December 2012) to the Electrical Power Asset Policy. This standard now supersedes that document and any requirements set out in NR/L1/ELP/27000 issue 1.
