Progress Rail has signed a memorandum of understanding with Egyptian National Railways (ENR) to supply new locomotives and modernise, overhaul and maintain a portion of its existing locomotive fleet.
Progress Rail has served the Egyptian market since the 1950s through its EMD brand.
The company has powered or supplied the overwhelming majority of ENR’s current operational fleet – with more than 1,100 locomotives delivered over the course of 60 years, and the company plans to deepen that legacy through today’s announcement.
Progress Rail president and CEO William Ainsworth said: “We value the strong, collaborative relationship we have with ENR, and look forward to putting a plan in place to modernise their locomotive fleet with highly advanced locomotive electronics, quality components and state-of-the-art technologies.
“These innovations will work in tandem to take their existing fleet to the next level through optimised performance.”
