Garrandale was recently awarded a contract by Bombardier for the fabrication, assembly and supply of controlled emission toilet (CET) tanks, which will be fitted to a number of new trains.

Garrandale manufactures a range of CET tanks to meet customers’ requirements. Each tank can be custom designed and tailored for compatibility with the rolling stock to ensure improved functionality and reliability throughout the service life of the train.

Working to a design supplied by Bombardier, Garrandale fabricated and assembled 58 CET tanks for the company’s 377-type units to suit the specific requirements and ensure compatibility with the new trains. The designs incorporated all of the latest technology and included the wiring for the electronic control system.

Another recent contract has seen Garrandale supply a HVAC lifting unit for the safe and efficient handling of air-conditioning units in Bombardier’s production facility. The unit is used to remove and fit air-conditioning units to the ceilings of trains, ensuring that they remain in perfect balance throughout the lifting operation and can be easily fitted in the correct position on the train.
