The Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) has expanded the 15-year relationship with Harsco Rail with the award of a contract.

The LTA focuses on planning, designing, building and maintenance of Singapore’s land transport systems and infrastructure.

Under the provision of this contract awarded in July, Harsco Rail will deliver a 16-stone grinder specifically designed for the LTA’s unique needs; the grinding carriage was designed to accommodate electric motors and to operate in Singapore’s new railway line – Thomson-East Coast Line.

Harsco Rail president Jeswant Gill pointed to the longstanding relationship with LTA as a key factor in the award of this new contract. Gill said: “We have developed a strong partnership and open communication with LTA over the last 15 years. Because of that strong foundation, we were able to develop quality product that supports the specific needs of the Singapore railway system.”
