ESCO says it is capable of meeting all of IRIR’s demands with a rail output capacity of 400,000 tons per year and will export its excess production

The long wait finally came to an end when Esfahan Steel Company supplied the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways with the first batch of domestically produced rails on Sunday.
The batch contains 500 tons of U33 rails manufactured using the latest technologies and based on Europe's EN13674 standards, an ESCO statement announced.
"Producing rail based on the latest European standards was painstaking and complicated, but worth the pain to achieve self-sufficiency," said ESCO's newly-appointed managing director, Mansour Yazdizadeh.
He recently replaced Ahmad Sadeqi who had led ESCO since November 2015.
