Harsco Rail signs its first ever rail grinder contract with Hungarian Railways
The $10.3 million order is Harsco Rail’s first grinder contract for MÁV FKG Kft-t, which manages all maintenance and renovation of Hungary’s national railway network.
Harsco Corporation has announced that its Rail division has signed a $10.3 million contract with MÁV FKG Kft-t to provide it with an EU 20-stone rail grinder.
This is the first-ever grinder order by Hungarian Railways, which joins a long list of countries that have been using Harsco Rail grinders for years.
Harsco Rail’s 20 stone grinder (RGH20C2), which removes surface defects on rails and re-profiles the rail head on both rails, is one of the most technologically advanced grinders working today. Fully compliant with all European standards, it easily grinds mainline and switches without any modifications, sustainably operates with an environmentally-friendly stage V engine, and has rail profile (transversal and longitudinal) measurement system and head checking measurement system installed.
Harsco Rail President Jeswant Gill, said: “We’re very pleased to expand our partnership with Hungarian Railways. This award demonstrates Hungarian Railways’ confidence in Harsco Rail as a valued partner capable of delivering class-leading performance with
our innovative and technologically advanced products.”
