The Opportunity

Through their UK-based rolling stock locations, Progress Rail is seeking additional support for locomotive overhaul, maintenance and engine work as they expand their portfolio in the Middle East. 

This includes a recent deal signed with Egyptian National Railways (ENR), involving the supply of diesel locomotives, modernising diesel locomotives from ENR’s existing fleet and overhauling another fleet of locomotives.

Specific components will be sourced from the UK, details of which can be found on the procurement list. This event presents an opportunity to meet with representatives from Progress Rail's procurement team to find out how to secure these supply contracts.


What you can expect at the event:

  • Technical and executive overview
  • Details of the procurement process for UK suppliers
  • Hear from Export Finance Managers on how UK Export Finance can help support you in your export journey
  • 1-2-1 meetings with representatives from Progress Rail


Why you should attend:

Strong opportunity to enter the supply chain for this project. A significant amount of UK supplies will be required as a condition of the UK government’s export finance support.

Build and consolidate relationships with procurement representatives from Progress Rail, whilst also meeting with other suppliers, officials from UK Export Finance and the Department for International Trade.

Support for entry into new markets: UK Export Finance’s support will mean the overall credit risk for the project will be equivalent to supplying a UK government project. UK government officials will be present to provide guidance on doing business in-market and to discuss further opportunities.

Please note, all registrations will be subject to organisers’ review.
