Gemco Rail announces new wagon build contract

Gemco Rail is pleased to announce that we have executed a contract with Arc Infrastructure Pty Ltd (Arc) to design, supply, and commission 20 specialised rail wagons. These wagons will be used to transport ballast for rail track construction and maintenance works across Arc’s freight rail network in Western Australia.

The project is expected to be delivered over a 20-month period, including a prototype in FY23 and production units in FY24. Gemco Rail will leverage its experienced engineering and project teams, coupled with highly skilled rollingstock technicians to assemble the wagons at its flagship facility in Forrestfield, Western Australia. These wagons will be designed to operate across all West Australian rail networks using standard and narrow-gauge configurations interchangeably and will also incorporate Gemco Rail’s innovative remote controlled ballast gating system to enhance operating efficiency and safety.

Gemco Rail’s extensive rail capabilities have positioned the business to serve the attractive, niche new rollingstock market, and reaffirms our reputation as Australia’s leading, independent supplier of quality rollingstock products and services.

This contract capitalises on Gemco Rail’s strategic alliances with our global partners in the supply of world-class rollingstock components, which are designed to operate in some of the harshest operating environments in the world and bodes well for future wagon build opportunities.
