Germany-based Rail.One Group has won two contracts in Qatar and Spain to deliver ballastless tracks.

Under the first deal, Rail.One will deliver several models of the Rheda City ballastless track system for construction of a new tram line in Doha, Qatar.

Around 15km of the new line will be installed with concrete cover and a short section will be covered in turf.

The production of around 14,000 concrete sleepers is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2013, at a factory in Hail, Saudi Arabia.

The new tram line in Doha’s Education City will be built by Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) under a QAR450m ($124m) contract with the Qatar Foundation (QF).

The project is part of the QAR1.5bn ($412m) QF rail system contract awarded to Siemens Tram Consortium, which includes HLG, Siemens WLL Doha and Siemens.

The new line is expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2015.

Rail.One will also deliver its Rheda 2000 ballastless track system for three tunnels in the vicinity of the port city of Vigo in the northwest of Spain, as part of the Eje Atlántico projects.

The company will produce over 40,000 bi-block concrete sleepers from the Rheda 2000 system at the Toro plant in Spain.

Rail.One has already delivered its track system for over 15km of track for the Eje Atlántico projects.
