Recently, the phosphorus doped BaNi2As2 system was found to exhibit a large increase of Tc upon suppression of the structural transition, which was attributed to a large phonon softening at the critical concentration. Here, we investigate the closely related Ba(Ni1−2Fex)2As2 system, mostly on the iron-rich side, using high-resolution thermal expansion, specific heat, magnetization and resistivity measurements. We find a very similar suppression of the structural transition with Fe- as with P-doping, but do not find an enhanced superconducting transition. However, both the thermal expansion and resistivity exhibit anomalously large anomalies around the critical doping region, which are shown to be of non phononic origin. We discuss similarities and differences between both Fe- and P-substituted systems.
