RailPower inks Green Goat assembly agreement with Super Steel

Today, RailPower Technologies Corp. announced today it signed assembly and supply agreements with Super Steel Products Corp. and Super Steel Schenectady Inc.

Super Steel will assemble RailPower’s hybrid Green Goat® locomotive at a Schenectady, N.Y., facility.

“We felt it appropriate to bring online additional manufacturing capacity for our locomotive production,” said RailPower President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Maier in a prepared statement.
“[Super Steel’s] facility gives us significant capacity for the large, East Coast markets.”

The 2,000-horsepower Green Goat is designed to cut fuel usage between 40 percent and 70 percent and reduce emissions between 80 percent and 90 percent compared with a conventional switcher.
