Rail Networks


Newton Derby is at the forefront of power generation for the rail industry with several flagship projects delivered over the past few years. These include projects for Transport for London, which is responsible for upgrading, replacing and maintaining two thirds of the London Underground, which carries more than one billion passengers a year. Which is as many as the entire National Rail network.

Recently Newton Derby installed three containerised rotary frequency changers on the Metropolitan Line which services 34 stations over a distance of 41.5 miles.

Additionally, Newton Derby has been awarded a further contract to supply five containerised frequency converters for the 40 mile District Line serving 60 stations.

Newton Derby’s understanding of the unique environments faced by the rail industry combined with the skills of its team and that of its sister division Winder Electrical means that the company is ideally placed to provide a total generation solution for the rail industry.


“Newton Derby is very proud of its specialist industry expertise and few companies can compete with us when it comes to power generation solutions for the rail industry.” – Elizabeth MacKenzie, General Manager for Newton Derby
