About This Project

The buildings at Dundalk Clarke Train station were each intricately designed by the GNRI’s first chief engineer, William Hemingway Mills back in 1894. The station is noted for its fine iron, glass, and polychromatic brickwork.

MDE were contracted to carry out the installation of replacement electrical works. Working at Dundalk maintenance depot for Iarnród Éireann on the upgrade of all electrical installations enabled us to demonstrate our efficiency and our attention to health and safety and security requirements.

We were contracted to strip out all existing life expired electrical infrastructure and replace it with installations to meet all current standards.

We were able to apply our managerial, organisational and health and safety skills and expertise to ensure the new installation was completed with no disruption to the daily operations of the depot.
