A World of Steel

With voestalpine, even the most complex of rail sections are possible. The company provides specialist solutions for all types of rail transport, whether main-line track or light railway (underground or suburban railways), and is the only manufacturer in the world to supply heat-treated rails in ultra lengths of up to 120 metres.

voestalpine supplies Ireland’s Railway Procurement Agency. At the start of this millennium, the company successfully tendered for Dublin’s Luas contract, which means that Dubliners now travel on rails from Austria when they take a tram in the city. Since 2000, voestalpine has supplied a total of 32.5 kilometres of rail for the construction of the green and red lines in the Irish capital. The Luas Cross Link construction project, which began in 2013 and is scheduled for completion in 2017, is opening up new opportunities for voestalpine as a supplier.

As European market leader and a trailblazer of worldwide renown, voestalpine has been instrumental in the development of the railway tracks that we know today. With this competitive edge, voestalpine is able to focus exclusively on creating top-quality rails using ultra-modern systems at its Leoben/Donawitz site and is continually introducing new solutions to the market. In 2012, for instance, the company rolled out DOBAIN®, the world’s first-ever maintenance-free rails.
