Weedfree is delighted to announce that it has won a long term contract to treat the entire Norwegian rail network commencing in 2015. A single treatment per year will require the Weedfree spray train to apply herbicides to approximately 4,000km of track. The treatment will be carried out during June and July each year until 2020 and will be worked around our current Danish contract.
Weedfree will be working with Grenland Rail who will supply locomotives, planning services, drivers and train captain personnel. Each year, Grenland Rail and Weedfree will work together to plan an effective campaign that ‘optimises a targeted treatment’. The aim being to drive down herbicide usage whilst maintaining an effective treatment throughout. This will be achieved through high output targeted and intelligent application techniques using our ‘state of the art’ weed spray train.
Our MD, Neil Bangham, would like to thank all those involved in the tender process and leading up to the final award. Weedfree scored very well in all points categories and Norwegian Rail were extremely happy with our documentation.
