When work began on the new Polk County CSX Rail Hub in Winter Haven, Fla. last February, it was all Cat® equipment getting the job done.
Last week, Florida Gov. Rick Scott joined state and local officials, along with executives from several Florida companies — including Ring Power — at the ceremonial groundbreaking of the Winter Haven Intermodal Rail terminal.
The CSX Intermodal terminal is being built on 318 acres and will include five 3,000 feet loading tracks, and two 10,000 feet arrival and departure tracks.
To date Ring Power has supplied two articulated trucks, five hydraulic excavators, eight track-type tractors and one compactor for the project.
Once finished, the terminal is projected to create approximately 8,500 jobs and generate more than $10 billion in economic impact over the next ten years.
