LTK Engineering Services hired David Genova as director of transit advisory services. Genova is former general manager and chief executive officer of the Regional Transportation District of Denver (RTD). He retired from RTD last year after nearly 26 years. In his new role, Genova will share his expertise to bridge the gap between the firm’s technical experts and the firm’s transit executive clients, LTK officials said in a press release.

Harsco Corp. released its Environmental, Social & Governance Report highlighting its sustainability accomplishments in fiscal-year 2019 and the first half of 2020. In that time, Harsco launched 22 new environmental solutions, saved over 5 million metric tons of carbon emissions through the environmental division, and recycled almost 19 million tons of materials. In addition, Harsco Rail introduced the TX16 production and switch tamper, which offers "significantly" lower fuel consumption per mile of tamped track and a reduced carbon footprint, company officials said in a press release.

Amglo released an LED lamp for freight and passenger locomotives. The A19 Lamp offers interchangeability for both diesel and electric locomotives and is temperature resistant, Amglo officials said in a press release.

Urban Engineers marked its 60th anniversary this month. The firm opened with a staff of seven and has grown to a staff of 475 with 15 offices across the country. To mark the milestone, Urban Engineers created an online campaign to highlight the firm’s culture, people, partners and projects each month.
