WINNER: Trojan Services – TroPath
Alistair McGowan did a fantastic job of presenting the various award categories including Construction Recycler, Business Partnership and Team of the Year. Judge Paul Vanston, Chief Executive INCPEN presented the Best Recycled Product to Trojan, commenting on the professionalism of the team and the achievement of introducing innovative recycled products to the rail industry.
JUDGES’ COMMENT: “A simply amazing product– it delivers everything you’d want in a best recycled product. Mile after mile of this product will be installed along railways across the world, we have no doubt.”
Trojan Services took part in the East West Rail Alliance's troughing challenge to design an innovative cable troughing system that would meet its ‘next generation railway’ requirements by combining the welfare of workers along with environmental and sustainable elements. TroPath is the result. It combines the need for cable housing for power, signals and telecoms with a safe walking route for rail personnel. The product is an innovation of an existing product, TroTred.
An independent life cycle assessment carried out by Ricardo Environmental found that TroPath outperforms traditional concrete products on all counts. In addition, the product has been developed in light of Office of Rail and Road manual handling restrictions for the health and safety of railway works.
All Trojan products are manufactured using raw material mined from end of life vehicles such as cars, trains and decommisisoned aircraft carriers. The Trojan supply chain is entirely UK based ensuring quality, cost efficiency and reliability.
