Ferrycarrig achieves TAO Accreditation

Ferrycarrig has achieved Technically Assured Organisation (TAO) Status  

Ferrycarrig has been accredited as a Technically Assured Organisation (TAO) status by the Asset Standards Authority of Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW).

Formerly recognised as AEO accreditation, TfNSW’s TAO Framework ensures that engineering services outsourced by TfNSW are delivered by capable and competent organisations.

As a Technically Assured Organisation, Ferrycarrig is authorised to assist with specialist engineering services to support the delivery of heavy rail projects for TfNSW.

To achieve this outcome Ferrycarrig met the rigorous requirements of the Asset Standards Authority as a safe and capable supplier of specialist engineering services.

The authorisation is conducted by assessing an organisation’s ability to deliver the defined scope of assured engineering services, and also rate the maturity of an organisation’s systems and their deployment against TAO requirements.

Accreditation under this scheme provides TfNSW with justified confidence in Ferrycarrig’s ability to deliver safe and fit-for-purpose assets and demonstrates that we are capable of undertaking large-scale multidisciplinary projects with complex interfaces.

TAO Status will enable Ferrycarrig to deliver end-to-end services in the rail sector for specialist engineering disciplines including engineering surveying, bridges and structures, earthworks, roads and pavements, drainage and hydrology, combined services routes and HV electrical.

Ferrycarrig’s Commercial Director, Jason Finn, said that TAO Status provides an opportunity to strengthen Ferrycarrig’s business relationship with Transport for NSW. “We welcome potential new project delivery opportunities in the heavy rail sector with TfNSW and we look forward to continuing to work with them in an increased capacity.”

Ferrycarrig’s Compliance Director, Micheal O’Keeffe, praised those involved in securing the accreditation. “We would like to thank our engineering teams for their concerted effort and commitment to continuous improvement of our quality and assurance systems.”

“This achievement is a recognition of Ferrycarrig’s maturity and reaffirms our commitment to operational excellence. It reflects the work we have been delivering in the rail sector over recent years and demonstrates that our systems and processes comply with the highest standards from design through to construction, testing and commissioning.”

“Not only does it support greater access to high-value government-funded rail infrastructure contracts, it will also provide Ferrycarrig’s clients and stakeholders with greater confidence in our ability to deliver safe and fit-for-purpose transport infrastructure assets.”
