On 30th January 2020 Progress Rail working with UKEF hosted a supplier opportunity day in London.

Through their UK-based rolling stock locations, Progress Rail is seeking additional support for locomotive overhaul, maintenance and engine work as they expand their portfolio in the Middle East.

This includes a recent deal signed with Egyptian National Railways (ENR), involving the supply of diesel locomotives, modernising diesel locomotives from ENR’s existing fleet and overhauling another fleet of locomotives.

Specific components will be sourced from the UK, details of which can be found below. This event presented an opportunity to meet with representatives from Progress Rail’s procurement team to find out how to secure these supply contracts.

Suppliers that were unable to attend the event but that are interested in supplying any of the following are encouraged to contact ourselves or Progress Rail asap. 

Progress Rail are looking to procure the following items from the UK supply chain:
