For large projects we would bring in a complete portable plant including a 50-pocket rail train for high production and reduced rail train transportation time. For mid-sized jobs, we would use our mini-train where specialized CWR rail carts are utilized for transportation and layout of CWR strings. All applications can be used for new construction or CWR change-out projects. Utilizing our versatility and expertise, we can maximize efficiency and reduce your costs.
