Balfour Beatty Continues Significant Investment in Rail Plant

 Balfour Beatty Continues Significant Investment in Rail Plant

Balfour Beatty has invested over £1.65 million this year in its rail plant division, acquiring two Class 20 locomotives and four 'Track Rascal' Komatsu PC138US-11 road rail excavators. This investment enhances their capability in maintaining and improving railway infrastructure.

Enhancing Railway Services with Advanced Technology

The two Class 20 locomotives will provide essential drainage remediation services and support haulage for Balfour Beatty's broader Rail Plant business. Equipped with engine pre-heaters, these locomotives reduce emissions during start-up and include various safety and environmental upgrades.

The 'Track Rascal' excavators are fitted with the latest GKD Version 11 RCI system, meeting current railway standards. Their advanced dig-depth technology aims to save thousands of tonnes of wasted excavation material over their lifetime, offering significant operational and environmental benefits.

Commitment to Innovation and Sustainability

This substantial investment underscores Balfour Beatty’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. By integrating advanced technology, the company is poised to deliver enhanced efficiency and safety in railway maintenance and development. The new equipment not only boosts Balfour Beatty's operational capabilities but also highlights its proactive approach to reducing environmental impact.

By minimising unnecessary excavation, Balfour Beatty can reduce its environmental footprint while maintaining high standards of operational excellence. The new acquisitions are expected to play a crucial role in supporting the company’s efforts to enhance service delivery and operational efficiency.
