The city of Sotchi, in Russia, is to host the 2014 winter Olympics. Vigier Rail is providing its expertise in environmentally friendly transport systems by installing Low-Vibration Track (LVT) tie blocks on the new rail track to the city. For this massive project a new facility for producing ballastless track units under LVT license to Vigier Rail has been opened in Russia. It includes an immediate-strip casting machine.

In Istanbul, in Turkey, 80,000 tie blocks will be produced for the construction of a 12-km long section of dual-track railroad in the Marmaray tunnel. Here too, Vigier Rail is providing an immediate-strip casting machine. The tunnel connecting the two sides of the Bosphorus is scheduled to open in 2013.
