Our team’s extensive experience in the design and delivery of major rail infrastructure globally adds further credibility to the feasibility process.

Reliance Rail International recognizes the industry demands for project development and funding and we assists clients in all three phases of the feasibility study process. Starting with the Conceptual or Scoping phase, the Preliminary or Prefeasibility phase, and the Final or Definitive phase.

Scoping (Concept) Study

Prefeasibility Studies

Definitive (Full) Feasibility Studies

During this phase we assist clients in defining the potential of a project, eliminating options that are unlikely to become optimal, and determine if there is sufficient opportunity to justify the investment required for further studies.

In this phased we assist clients in developing and selecting the preferred operating options from the shortlisted options defined by the scoping study and to provide a case for whether or not to commit to the large expenditure and effort involved in a subsequent definitive feasibility study.

From this stage we assist our clients in refining the optimal operating scenario defined by the prefeasibility study. The final product is often used to assist our clients with external financing requirements. This study, once developed, provides the basis for the decision as to whether in fact further study is required, whether the project is worth pursuing or whether to advance the project to design and construction.
