British Steel secures four-year supply contract with Infrabel

British Steel secures four-year supply contract with Infrabel

(Posted on 09/06/23)

British Steel’s Rail business is celebrating another successful contract win with Belgian railway infrastructure manager Infrabel.

The 4-year agreement will see British Steel supply 40,000 tonnes of high-quality rail in various profiles for the maintenance and renewal of track across the Belgian rail network.

Deliveries are scheduled to start this month.

Jérôme Bonef, British Steel’s Export Sales Manager, Rail, said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working in partnership with Infrabel over the next 4 years.

“We operate in a highly competitive market so it’s extremely pleasing that Infrabel has selected us to supply rail for the Belgian network once more. It’s a great endorsement of our proven technical record, ability to develop products to meet demand, superb logistics solution and excellent delivery performance – securing another contract with a national network operator is a source of enormous pride.”

The 100-metre-long rails will be manufactured at British Steel’s Rail and Section Mill in Scunthorpe, before making their way by rail to Infrabel’s welding facility in Belgium.

The announcement comes a short time after British Steel announced it had secured a major export deal for West Africa. The agreement will see the company supply the Guinea Bauxite Company with 244,000 steel sleepers – its largest ever order for rail sleepers.

Jérôme said: “By working in partnership with our customers we can offer superb value for money by reducing the need for costly and time-consuming maintenance and replacement works. The less disruption to a network, the greater the flow of traffic – major benefits felt by passengers and freight operators. “We look forward to continuing to work together collaboratively with Infrabel as we deliver high-quality products into this partnership.”
