Gulf rail network will be a milestone

Posted in on 2018-03-14 15:18:44

The six nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) share many ties and bonds that have formed down through the centuries of living a common heritage and purpose in close geographical and indeed familial ties.

Abu Dhabi: Etihad Rail, the master developer and operator of the UAE's national railway network, said yesterday it has selected Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD), one of the world's largest builders of diesel-electric locomotives, to design and manufacture seven heavy haul freight locomotives for delivery by 2012.



Etihad Rail didn't say what the size of the deal with EMD was and spokespersons at Etihad Rail and EMD were unavailable for comment when contacted by Gulf News.



Etihad Rail, however, said in a statement the locomotives contract was a "momentous milestone" for the Dh40 billion project.
