Greenbrier to supply rail tank cars to Saudi Arabia

Saudi Railway Company (SAR) has placed an order for 1,200 rail tank cars from US supplier Greenbrier.

The cars will be used to transport molten sulfur and phosphoric acid from mining operations in the Sirhan-Turaif region of northern Saudi Arabia.

Greenbrier will manufacture the cars, which will be built to US standards, at its wholly-owned Wagony Swidnica subsidiary in Swidnica, Poland.

SAR is set to receive the first cars in the second half of 2016. Deliveries are expected to be completed between 2017 and 2018.
