Client Testimonials


AEGIS Engineering Systems has supported our project from day 1 providing clarity and guidance in a vast number of railway domains. On that matter AEGIS quickly understood the needs of the project and knew where to support, what stakeholders to involve and how to set up the workflow to ensure certification of our On Track Machine.

AEGIS’ team of engineers have proven to be extremely knowledgeable on large subjects such as EMC, CSM and Gauging. Their contributions to the project allowed successful certification for our brand new fleet of Weed Spraying trains, in addition AEGIS have a vast external network of subject matter experts that provided additional support as required throughout the project.

Andy Batters as our appointed Project Manager was highly professional and knew exactly when to engage the necessary competences for every milestone. He was also quite resourceful providing ideas, contacts and taking the best approaches to support us and our suppliers

“AEGIS (particularly Dan Steenson and Colin Place) have been exceptionally helpful, extremely knowledgeable and very practical to work with on the HydroFLEX project. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again”. 

Helen Simpson – Innovation and Projects Director – Porterbrook

“Our latest sander project, the OTM sander system, has been made a lot easier thanks to the assistance of James Johnson and the team at AEGIS Engineering Systems.
AEGIS have produced a compliance matrix; detailing all of the compliance requirements for the system, and what would be acceptable evidence to demonstrate compliance, on a clause-by-clause basis.
This allows ourselves – as the supplier – the customer – as the safety case holder – and the machine owner – as the ECM – to all agree in advance exactly what needs to be in the engineering change pack and who’s responsibility it is to provide it.
A common failing of modification projects, such as this, is failing to reach this understanding in advance and critical time being wasted to-ing and fro-ing hurriedly trying to assemble missing information at the last minute”.

AEGIS Certification Services has proven to dg8 design and engineering that it can deliver independent verification work in a timely and cost-effective manner and an excellent working relationship has developed between the two organisations. A key part of this relationship has been the pragmatic application of expertise of the Certification team who are familiar with the verification of engineering changes to existing railway vehicles, many of which were constructed prior to the implementation of current standards.
