Photo Release -- Harsco Awarded $100+ Million Railway Track Maintenance Equipment Contract In Switzerland

CAMP HILL, Pa., Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversified global industrial company Harsco Corporation (NYSE:HSC) announced today a major railway track and infrastructure maintenance equipment award from SBB, the federal railway system of Switzerland.
Swiss Award
Harsco's Utility Track Vehicle (UTV) solution for SBB, the Swiss railway system, features an efficient dual-mode traction system to reduce fuel consumption along with a highly versatile rail-based maintenance configuration.

The contract comprises an initial order worth over $100 million through 2016, together with provisions for future options. Harsco Rail will supply SBB with a combination of specialty vehicles and Utility Track Vehicles (UTVs), a highly versatile rail-based maintenance configuration equipped with cranes, generators and/or work platforms that is widely used by railways throughout the world. Delivery of the first vehicle is scheduled for 2015.

The units will be deployed on the Gotthard and Ceneri Base Tunnels. Both tunnels are integral parts of the Swiss AlpTransit project, a major undertaking to increase transport capacity across the Alps, while at the same time reducing the environmental damage associated with highway truck transport. The new technology Harsco Rail is developing for SBB will further support emissions reduction by utilizing an advanced, dual-mode traction system which, in turn, reduces diesel fuel consumption. 

"This contract is a major strategic win that goes beyond simply the dollar size of the order," said Harsco President and CEO Patrick Decker. "Not only does it energize the growth of our European Rail business model and support our future objectives, it speaks also to our capacity for technical innovation and responsiveness to stringent customer specifications."
