Harsco Corporation’s Rail Division has been awarded a three-year mobile maintenance train service contract by Network Rail.
The contract, valued approximately at USD 25 million, calls for Harsco Rail to operate and maintain Network Rail’s fleet of eight mobile maintenance trains. The contract is scheduled to begin in April 2020, and comes with an optional two-year extension.
The fleet of mobile maintenance trains plays a critical role in Network Rail’s operations, enabling the delivery of essential track-maintenance works throughout the railroad infrastructure; seven trains are currently operational and based at Darlington, Wakefield, Retford, Derby, Horsham, Paddock Wood and Romford, while the eighth vehicle is used to undertake overhaul and maintenance works.
“We’re very pleased to expand our partnership with Network Rail,” said Harsco Rail President Jeswant Gill. “This award demonstrates Network Rail’s confidence in Harsco Rail as a valued partner capable of delivering class-leading performance.”
