Story Contracting were recently presented with the Silver Plant Reliability Award on Network Rail’s Route to Gold scheme, becoming one of only two suppliers in the UK to receive the accolade. The award was presented as a result of Story’s ongoing commitment and performance to Network Rail’s RPP (Rail Plant Performance) System.
Story’s Plant Maintenance Manager, James Haile, accepted the award on behalf of the Plant Department, with Network Rail praising Story’s honesty, root cause analysis, reporting and willingness to share. This is a fantastic achievement for everyone involved from all 3 depots (Carlisle, Bonnyrigg and Normanton), but especially for the maintenance teams who are working to achieve 100% Plant reliability on a daily basis.
“Route to Gold is a Network Rail initiative to reward Plant Suppliers in their service of providing reliable plant that delivers strong shift performance in collaboration with Clients. The Silver Award recognises Plant Suppliers that have continued to demonstrate progress in terms of reliability of plant; Client engagement and best practice to identify and share root cause of failures. Story captures and records all shifts on the Network Rail ‘Rail Plant Performance System’ (Rail PPS) and this award is underpinned through Client endorsement of the performance of Plant supplied by Story. Having previously achieved the Bronze Award, Story has demonstrated consistently this path of continuous improvement and collaboration which is rewarded with the Silver Plant Reliability Award.”
