Ruspet has been subcontracted by South Africa’s state owned transport and logisitics company, Transnet, to design and install exhaust mufflers for a fleet of diesel locomotives to be constructed as part of government’s drive to modernise the country’s ageing rail infrastructure and rolling stock.

Ruspet has successfully completed the design and installation of the mufflers for the prototype diesel locomotive.

“We look forward to continuing with this project and being part of creating a more modern locomotive fleet for Transnet, which will improve reliability and availability of the locomotives for the company and its customers,” says Russell Cockburn, founder and MD of Ruspet Exhausts.
