Harsco Rail Signs Its First Ever Contract With Hungarian Railways

Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC)has announced that its Rail division has signed a $10.3 million contract with MÁV FKG Kft-t to provide it with an EU 20-stone rail grinder. This is the first-ever grinder order by Hungarian Railways, which joins a long list of countries that have been using the efficient and reliable Harsco Rail grinders for years.

Harsco Rail’s 20 stone grinder (RGH20C2), which removes surface defects on rails and re-profiles the rail head on both rails, is one of the most technologically advanced grinders working today. Fully compliant with all European standards, it easily grinds mainline and switches without any modifications, sustainably operates with an environmentally-friendly stage V engine, and has rail profile (transversal and longitudinal) measurement system and head checking measurement system installed.

“We’re very pleased to expand our partnership with Hungarian Railways,” said Harsco Rail President Jeswant Gill. “This award demonstrates Hungarian Railways’ confidence in Harsco Rail as a valued partner capable of delivering class-leading performance with our innovative and technologically advanced products.”
