Canadian Association of Railway Suppliers Awards PNR RailWorks for Innovation

PNR RailWorks has been recognized by the Canadian Association of Railway Suppliers (CARS) for innovation.

At CARS’ National Railway Day in Edmonton, Alberta, earlier this month, PNR RailWorks – Prairie Track Division was honored with the Innovation Award for developing innovative technologies that create a positive impact on the rail industry, specifically around the division’s Edmonton 66th Street Tunnel Upgrade Project.

During the four-month job to improve the tunnel and track in Edmonton, Alberta, PNR RailWorks demonstrated innovation by: completing the project with live service on the adjacent track, setting the rail and plates in place with quick set lcosit 330/10, scheduling adjustments to meet project demands and mocking up a rail measuring system by generating data from a design survey.

“The project represented a collaborative effort between PNR RailWorks, our partners and the customer,” said Sean Perkins, RailWorks Vice President of Regional Operations. “That collaboration resulted in a project that was completed safely and on time. I’m proud of the team on this tremendous accomplishment.”

CARS, an association of suppliers of products and services to Canadian railways and export markets, represents more than 150 organizations vital to the operations of railways and transit authorities.
