About Mohammed Dilwar Hussain
Electrical design engineer with over 5 years experience in the Rail industry.
As part of the stations design team i am responsible for designing the electrical services to be provided for any array of projects taking place on London Underground and Network Rail infrastructure, including LV Mains upgrade, Cooling the Tube, Airwave and PPP modernisation for London Underground and Themeslink redevelopment at Farringdon.
Services provided include new and upgraded LV mains and submains distribution systems, UPS systems, lighting systems and lightning protection systems.
I am competent in using industry standard lighting design application Dialux to create lighting solutions to LU standards and Amtech Pro Design to perform LV Cable calculations.
I have developed an work sheet using Excel to carryout lightning risk assessments to BS EN 62305 and another to use the outputs available from Amtech to create cable schedules and CMS sizing calculations based solely on the Cable refrence number, simplifying the process and reducing the potential for errors arising from the need to manually transpose the required information.

Lighting design using Dialux package
LV distribution design using AMTECH Designer Suit
Experience with Atkins (Feb 2007 – Present)
Feb 2011 – Present: Electrification and Power
As part of the E&P design team I am responsible for designing lighting and LV distribution systems for P-Way services, including power supplies to points heating systems and signalling systems for Network Rail.
Oct 2011 – Feb 2011: Birmingham New Street Station
As part of the MEP design team for the Birmingham Gateway Project redeveloping Birmingham New Street Station, I was responsible for leading a team of engineers in Atkins’ Bangalore office in delivering the Electrical design for two changes to the GRIP 5 design. As lead design engineer I was responsible for training the engineers in the use of Dialux and Amtech and supervising the lighting and small power design. I was also responsible for carrying out the design of the cable routes and containment and planning the work flow and coordinating with other disciplines based in the UK.
Sept 2011 – Oct 2011: Bond Street Station Upgrade (RIBA E/F)
As part of the M&E design team I was responsible for carrying out non- intrusive surveys of the existing electrical installation and leading the lighting design. As part of lead lighting designer I was responsible for carrying out detailed lighting calculations for the New Ticket hall and reviewing calculations performed by other members of the team. I was also responsible for evaluating the efficiencies of the different light sources and comparing lighting solutions between LED T5 and T8 florescent Luminaires.
Sept 2010 - Present: Farringdon Station Redevelopment (GRIP 6-8 Support)
Due to the phasing and sequencing of the construction phase of Farringdon station redevelopment to meet Network Rails Key output 1 target, unforeseen site constraints and contractor led development of the GRIP 5 design clarification of and alterations to the existing GRIP design intent is required. Clarification and minor change in detailing is done primarily by a site based design team through the RFI process, major changes carried out under Variation Orders at Atkins design office. As part of the Grip 6-8 support team I am responsible for carrying out changes to the detailed design under VO’s and responding the larger RFI’s requiring multidiscipline responses and coordinating changes to the electrical design carried out under RFIs by the site team and VOs by the design team. I am also the primary contact for RFIs and VOs relating to the design and control. As a member of the primary design team I am required to attend site visits and meetings with the client and contractor, sometimes at short notice.
Dec 2010: LVAC Protection Studies
As part of Signalling immunisation programme and associated signalling upgrade works on the London Underground network, new LV distribution systems were installed at several sites along the Northern section of the Metropolitan line. Protection studies were not carried out on all sites and I was responsible for assessing the installed system and producing concise reports detailing the protection provided and identifying non-compliances with BS7671 and LU standards, as well as suggesting corrective measures.
Oct 2010 – May 2011: Communications Systems Asset Stabilisation
As part of the PPP station upgrade works due to be carried out on London Underground stations the existing communications systems were to be replaced with new. Following the administration of Metronet the planned upgrades have been delayed, however a number of systems across the network have been identified as being life expired / obsolete and as such are maintenance liabilities. As part of a programme of works to stabilise these assets I was responsible for carrying out surveys, during operational and engineering hours, to assess the condition of the existing electrical installations associated with the communications systems to identify and providing the necessary alterations and upgrades to the electrical systems.
Aug 2008 – Sept 2010: Farringdon Station Redevelopment (GRIP 4 and GRIP 5)
As part of Network Rails Thameslink program, and proposed link with Crossrail, Farringdon station is to be redeveloped to include two new ticket halls, and extensions to the existing train shed roof and Thameslink platforms. To cater for the increased power demand two new substations are to be installed at the station (DNO and PowerLink). As part of the delivery team, I was responsible for conducting an assessment of the lightning protection requirements at Farringdon station in accordance with BS EN 62305 and providing the necessary mitigation, producing the lighting solutions for the public areas and overseeing the development of the lighting solutions for the back of house areas. Farringdon station is owned by London Underground and as such any equipment/materials to be installed at Farringdon needs to comply with their strict requirements and approvals process, in order to comply with this I was task with liaising with all specified manufactures in the production of Technical Submissions, detailing the specifications of each proposed item and tests it has undergone to prove compliance with LU station. Also involved in the production of lighting control strategy, including presence detection and daylight linked controls, and the design of the LV distribution network.
Aug 2009 – Dec 2009: Cooling the Tube Program (Euston RIBA Stage E/F)
Lead electrical engineer responsible for the delivery the chilled water cooling system for Euston Underground Station. Responsible for detailed design of indoor and outdoor electrical distribution and lighting solutions. Tasks involved surveying existing structures and services and liaising with Network Rail and Tube Lines to integrate new installation with existing and to identify modifications to existing lighting distribution (LU station) and lighting protection system (NR station). Also responsible for design of earthing system for new 11kV DNO substation.
May 2009 – Jun 2009: Airwaves Project
As part of the upgrade of the London Underground radio network was responsible for surveying existing CERs and reviewing space allocation requests to identify enabling works required and produce conceptual design statements for the installation of new Airwaves radio and power racks.
Feb 2008 - Aug 2008: Cooling the Tube Program (Bank and Euston RIBA Stage D)
Lead electrical engineer involved in the simultaneous delivery of RIBA Stage D design of two CTP projects for London Underground.
For Bank was responsible for providing electrical distribution and lighting solution to four new ventilation shafts in the vicinity of Bank Underground Station. As part of the design was required to identify existing buried services at the proposed locations of the shafts and produce power load applications for each shaft.
The proposal for Euston consisted of a combination of Ventilation and Chilled water systems. As lead electrical engineer, was responsible for producing lighting solutions for new/existing London Underground / Network Rail infrastructure without detracting from existing services.
Feb 2007 – Jan 2008: Metronet Stations Modernisation and Refurbishment
As a design engineer within the Atkins Station Design Team, was responsible for the design and delivery of refurbishment and modernisation projects for section 12 and non-section 12 stations (BCV and SSL). Achieved delivery of coordinated designs of multidisciplinary projects within limited timescale. Developed skills in providing energy efficient lighting solutions for London Underground surface and subsurface stations using modern engineering practice.
