Sydney Trains awarded UGL a five-year extension for the delivery of maintenance and logistics services for a portion of Sydney’s metropolitan passenger rail fleet.
The value of the contract is AUD 630 million (USD 440.3 million) and involves heavy maintenance, component overhaul and supply chain capabilities, coupled with engineering and depot-related support.
“This significant contract extension further confirms UGL’s position as a market leader in rail maintenance and asset management, and our reputation for delivering reliable rolling stock asset management and maintenance,” UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said.
The services will be delivered through UGL Unipart, a 70:30 joint venture between UGL and Unipart Rail UK. The joint venture draws on both UGL’s asset management and maintenance capability and extensive knowledge of Sydney’s metropolitan passenger rail fleet, in addition to Unipart Rail UK, which delivers world class supply chain services to both the rail and vehicle industries.
