Trolley Wire

Over the years, trolley wire has developed into one of our most significant product categories. This product is used as a current-carrying contact wire which supplies power to urban transit, railroad vehicles, mining equipment, and industrial cranes.

Freeport-McMoRan Bayway Operations has played a major role in transit projects nationwide. We have supplied Amtrak, NJ Transit, DART, SEPTA, and others. Recently, Freeport-McMoRan Bayway Operations developed a patented process which provides silver bearing, oxygen free (CDA 107) trolley wire with the highest tensile strength in its ASTM classification. PD High Speed Trolley Wire is in use on Amtrak's high speed Acela Express rail in the Northeast. Trolley wire can be made to any ASTM, international, or customer specification.

Freeport-McMoRan Bayway Operations is positioned to provide the commuter and light rail industry with trolley wire in a variety of configurations and alloys to meet the specific needs of any new or refurbished project.
