Harsco Rail Awarded Multi-Year Contract by New York MTA

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) of New York, US, has selected Harsco Rail for a multi-year contract for flat cars.

The pact, valued at approximately $40m, calls for the construction and delivery of 65 flat cars by the end of 2021.

Under the contract, construction of the first flat car is scheduled to begin immediately. The first delivery is expected in July 2019, after which two new flat cars will be delivered per month.

The cars were purchased to support ongoing construction throughout the New York City subway system and will serve to improve both subway performance and passenger ride quality.

“New York’s subway system has more stations than any transit system in the world, and provides more than one billion rides per year,” said Harsco Rail president Jeswant Gill. “Harsco Rail could not be more pleased to partner with the MTA to help ensure a safer, more comfortable trip for customers.”
