CIMIC's UGL wins $100M contract extension with Transport for NSW15 September 2021
CIMIC Group company UGL, as a member of the RailConnect NSW joint venture, has been awarded a contract extension by Transport for NSW to increase the size of the Mariyung Fleet, and install an additional transformer at the Maintenance Facility at Kangy Angy, on the NSW Central Coast.
The contract extension will generate revenue to UGL of more than $100 million.
RailConnect, which was selected to deliver the Mariyung Fleet in 2016, will now build and maintain an additional 56 passenger cars, increasing the total New Intercity Fleet to 610 carriages.
RailConnect has been delivering the fleet progressively since 2020. The joint venture commenced maintenance and asset management services to the fleet on delivery of the first train in December 2020 and will continue to provide maintenance and asset management services for a period of 15 years.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “CIMIC and UGL are pleased to be expanding our delivery to the NSW Government of a fleet with advanced technology, comfort, convenience and reliability, and to be ensuring the ongoing performance of an effective, high-quality transport solution for commuters.”
UGL Managing Director Doug Moss said: “We are proud to continue our long-standing partnership with Transport for NSW to maintain the next generation in passenger rail travel for the people of New South Wales.”
The New Intercity Fleet project will replace trains carrying customers from Sydney to the Central Coast, Newcastle, the Blue Mountains and South Coast. The fleet of double deck trains will offer long distance customers a more enjoyable travelling experience, providing comfortable seating, improved accessibility, and enhanced commuter amenities, including Wi-Fi.
