Vossloh AG has received a major order of switch systems for the Australian Inland Rail project via its Australian subsidiary Vossloh Cogifer Australia Pty. Ltd. Inland Rail will connect the eastern Australian cities of Melbourne and Brisbane. Around 1,100 km of the planned 1,700-km freight line will be modernized, and 600 km will be newly built. The deliveries are spread over five years and have a total volume of around €50 million. The deliveries are reported as orders received at the time they are called off. The first switches will be delivered in March 2021. The customer is the state-owned ARTC, which manages most of the Australian rail network.

“This order is the biggest in the history of Vossloh in Australia. It highlights our strong market position and the increasing importance of the Australian market,” explains Oliver Schuster, Chief Executive Officer of Vossloh AG. “We are honored that our long-standing customer ARTC has once again placed its trust in us and that we can contribute to the biggest rail infrastructure project for freight transport in Australia.”

Vossloh Cogifer Australia Pty. Ltd. is part of the Customized Modules division in the Vossloh Group. The company is headquartered in Castlemaine in the state of Victoria, employs around 70 workers in Australia, and specializes in the manufacture and maintenance of switch systems.
