KiwiRail placed order for 100 new bulk coal containers

Monday, 05 Mar 2012

NEW ZEALAND's state railway KiwiRail has placed an order for 100 new bulk coal containers for use on its South Island domestic coal services. The 3m high containers will be dedicated to the Nightcaps -Temuka service which carries coal from the Takitimu mine in Southland to the South Canterbury factory of dairy company Fonterra.

The containers will be delivered in time for the start of the next dairy season on August 1 and will complement 80 new HCL containers added to the fleet in 2010.

The investment comes as KiwiRail completes a major year-long refurbishment of the Nightcaps branch line, which involved laying new sleepers and ballast. This has boosted the line speed from 25 to 40km/h.
