VOSSLOH has won a contract worth almost €40m to supply rail fastenings for the new 200km 350km/h high-speed line between Laixi and Rongcheng in the eastern province of Shandong.

Deliveries will commence this year and continue into 2023. Construction of the high-speed line, which is an extension of the Qingyin high-speed line, began in October 2020.

Vossloh chief executive, Mr Oliver Schuster, says that this order means that the planned sales in the high-speed market in China for 2022 are already fully secured.

The contract follows a €30m contract award in mid-December, for rail fastening systems for the construction of high-speed lines in southern China. Deliveries are due this year.
