Ricardo plc. is a global strategic, technical and environmental consultancy. It is also a specialist niche manufacturer of high performance products. The company employs over 2,900 professional engineers, consultants and scientists who are committed to delivering outstanding projects focused on class-leading innovation in our core product areas of engine, transmission, vehicle, hybrid and electrical systems, environmental forecasting and impact analysis.
Our rail capabilities extend across all key disciplines, from rolling stock, signalling and telecommunications, to energy efficiency, safety management and operational planning.
As a global consultancy we offer a range of technical services to the rail market. Within Ricardo Rail in Utrecht almost 200 highly motivated consultants and engineers provide expert advice on purchasing, homologation, maintenance management and performance improvement for trains, trams, metros, rail infrastructure and the interaction between rolling stock and infrastructure.
Through our expert understanding of the industry’s most critical and complex technologies, we provide our clients - operators, manufacturers, maintenance companies, infrastructure managers, investors and regulators – with specialist support to help reduce risk and improve performance across every aspect of their operations.
Services for rail clients are usually delivered by either:
