VTG wagon innovation wins award

VTG Rail UK has won an industry award for its conversion of redundant coal wagons into revenue-generating aggregate hoppers.

The company won the prestigious Freight and Logistics Achievement of the Year category at the National Rail Awards last Thursday (21 September).

Rob Brook, managing director of VTG, said: “We saw there was going to be an issue with having coal wagons redundant following the government’s decision in April 2015 to double the carbon ‘floor price’ – effectively pricing power station coal off the rails.

“We were convinced that this problem could also be a business opportunity, so we invested in the conversion, or, as we call it, repurposing.

“As coal carriers, the wagons were 18.3m long with a maximum payload of 75t. Now, they are shorter, but payload is increased to 78t.

“This conversion is cheaper than producing newbuild wagons, and the customer is able to carry significantly more product in the same number of trains of the same length, which delivers demonstrable benefits for the customer.”

“On behalf of everyone involved in the project I thank the judges for recognising the hard work they have put in, and the results we have achieved.

“It’s another example of VTG pushing the boundaries for the whole industry and delivering success.”
