Force One RAIL was established in 2013 offering suction excavation and material extraction services using road based suction vehicles.

Development rapidly followed that allowed for working at distances from the road vehicles of 100m plus along track.

Thereafter development saw modified Brokk remote nozzles added to the fleet along with a dedicated RRV option.

In addition a modular rail based suction system was designed, constructed and product approved 2018/2019.

Today this system is operational and together with our existing equipment applications are:

  • Level Crossings
  • Re-ballasting (Plain Line, S&C)
  • Drainage/catchment pits
  • Sensitive excavations
  • Trial holes
  • Pile locations
  • Foundations
