Harsco’s track maintenance business Harsco Rail has secured contracts for two separate services projects on major transit railroads in the northeastern US totalling $10m in projected revenues.

Under the first contract, a Harsco P811 track renewal system and its 24-person crew will replace 22,000 ties and eight miles of rail in the greater New York City metropolitan area by next year.

The P811 system and the crew removes and replaces old crossties, fasteners and rail in a single, self-contained set of units, giving railroad operators a fast and efficient solution to their track renewal and replacement needs.

"Harsco offers various onsite services and engineered products to the global steel, energy and railway sectors."

The track renewal projects are scheduled to be completed by the end of May each year, to ensure the work is completed prior to the summer-season increase in rail traffic.

Under the second deal, a Harsco new track construction (NTC) machine and its 13-person crew will be working in New York and Connecticut to build five miles of new continuous welded rail (CWR) track this year and next year.

The project will involve laying 12,000 new ties and installing the new CWR rail.

Harsco Rail provides railway track maintenance and construction, with a broad range of high quality equipment, cutting-edge technology and worldwide support to major railroads worldwide.

Harsco offers various onsite services and engineered products to the global steel, energy and railway sectors.
