Tata Steel and SNCF expand cooperation
Tata Steel has won a two-year contract to supply more than 200,000 t of track to the French rail operator SNCF. Under the terms of the deal most of the rails (in lengths of up to 108 m) that SNCF requires will be supplied from the Tata Steel plant in Hayange (France).
The order was secured following a EUR 35 million investment by Tata Steel in 2011, which allowed the Hayange mill to produce 108 m lengths of rail that SNCF will use throughout France’s standard and high-speed networks. The new agreement is an extension of a previous contract with SNCF. (ben)
