Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail signs €40 million contract for track maintenance services

After a competitive tendering process involving a number of major European rail companies, Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group has been selected as the preferred bidder to provide technical and engineering services to Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail. These services will focus on maintenance of the permanent way (track and supporting infrastructure).

Rail not only connects regions and people – it is also our safest, most sustainable and most environmentally friendly mode of transport and will play an important role in efforts to reach climate neutrality by 2050. This initiative aims to give the sector new impetus to promote investment and modernisation measures.

In all operational areas of our company, we’re focused on launching innovative concepts and high-quality solutions in the interests of a sustainable future. On these pages over the next few months, we’ll show you how we do what we do, introduce the minds behind the work and let you know what keeps us motivated.
