HARSCO has secured three contracts worth a total of $US 85m to supply and service track maintenance equipment.

The orders include the company's first rail grinder sale to an Italian customer. The units will be delivered in 2014 and 2015 for use on the new Line 5 of the Milan metro.

Harsco will also deliver an additional P-811 tract renewal train and a multi-functional track maintenance machine to Indian Railways (IR) by early 2014, complementing IR's existing fleet of seven Harsco track renewal trains.

Finally, Harsco has signed a contract extension with British infrastructure manager Network Rail to maintain its fleet of stoneblowers until mid-2015. The deal includes an option for a two-year extension.
