ACS-A was tasked with the development of a unique design of a light-weight composite coal wagon for rail. The design developed allows increased payload to be carried.
 
Applying specialist composite materials, design and manufacturing expertise, we worked with the customer and specialist rail engineers to take the composite coal wagon design from concept to prototype.
 
The use of composite materials combined with novel design solutions delivered a coal wagon that offers a significant competitive advantage over existing rail rolling stock solutions used by coal haulage operators.
