UGL Unipart awarded extension to major contract in Sydney


The UGL Unipart joint venture has secured a two-year extension to its contract with Sydney Trains for the delivery of maintenance and logistics services for a section of Sydney’s metropolitan passenger rail fleet.

The two-year extension will be effective from July 2019 and provide heavy maintenance and supply chain services to more than 1,050 passenger rail cars and is worth $395m to the joint venture.

UGL Unipart provides heavy maintenance and supply chain services to Sydney Trains.

UGL Unipart is a 70:30 joint venture between UGL, a member of CIMIC Group, and UK-headquartered Unipart Rail. It delivers whole-of-life asset solutions to support highly reliable passenger car fleets.

Glen Everett, Unipart’s managing director for Australia and New Zealand, said: “When we commenced the Joint Venture 7 years ago, we knew that the combination of UGL’s heavy maintenance skills and Unipart’s deep Supply Chain and Lean expertise – using our Unipart Way tools and systems – would deliver world-class service to Sydney Trains. We are extremely pleased that the successes of the last 7 years have led to this significant extension.”
