RVR acquires more trains to revamp rail transport

15 July 2014, 11:27

Nairobi - Rift Valley Railways (RVR) has announced plans to acquire 30 new trains in a bid to revamp the region’s cargo transport.

RVR’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Darlan De David said the region’s transport sector would experience a significant reprieve on cargo haulage this year once RVR augmented its locomotive fleet with the additional trains it was acquiring.
"We procured and will soon be receiving 20 of these General Electric locomotives from the United States. We are rehabilitating the rest in our workshops locally," he added.
Apart from the increasing haulage capacity, RVR is on track to meet railway line maintenance standards and has acquired modern track maintenance technology that will automate and speed up the process.
