Ramboll has acquired UK rail signalling specialist DEG Signal.
The Danish company said that the move would strengthen its position and fuel growth in the rail sector.
Consultant DEG Signal provides design services for both mainline rail and metro systems. The 17 strong team has recently worked with Transport for London (TfL), Network Rail and Siemens on alternative signalling protection systems on London Underground interoperable lines.
Ramboll is currently working on High Speed 2, Network Rail’s digital rail programme, completion of Crossrail stations as well as projects overseas.
Ramboll UK managing director Mathew Riley said the business was very excited to be bringing the new team on board.
“The move also showcases Ramboll’s commitment to the rail sector, and our intention to continue playing a major role in the development of modern rail systems both in the UK and overseas,” he said. “From our work on HS2 in the UK to the implementation of ERTMS in Denmark, we are involved in some of the most exciting rail projects around.”
DEG Signal chief executive Doug Green added: “Having collaborated with Ramboll across a number of years, we couldn’t pick a better partner to join. Their expertise and resources will be a major asset for our team and we are glad to be able to offer our clients a broader suite of services to support them in their projects. We can’t wait to get started.”
