While Holland has the largest fleet of MobileWelders in North America, we also provide rail welding in a fixed and portable settings. Using our Intelliweld® Control System, we provide an unmatched degree of accuracy and quality in the production of rail welds.
Our Intelliweld Control System features:
- Low Consumption Weld Capability
- Real-Time Weld Monitoring, Control, and Diagnostics
- Real-Time Automated data collection, weld parameter certification, charting and archiving
Rail transportation costs, and rail train availability and associated logistics are the most critical factors when planning large-scale rail installation projects. When delivery of Continuous Welded Rail (CWR) to a site via rail is not a practical or fiscally effective option, a Holland Porta-Plant should be considered.
Our porta-plant operations have an average of 8-10 welds per productive hour with our Intelliweld ® Control System.
Similar in function and with the same high quality weld production of a fixed plant, a Porta-Plant will provide greater weld production than a traditional roller line setup for less capital investment than CWR from a fixed plant.
With our years of experience operating these plants, our full turnkey crews tend to be 1-2 welds per hour more productive than crews with multiple stakeholders/contractors.

Fixed Plant Welding
Each of our fixed plant welding facilities operates with high production equipment and experienced personnel. Our facilities are capable of creating continuous welded rail strings in custom lengths, to be loaded onto rail trains for transport to various locations. Holland also offers rail trains, unloader cars and rail unloading services.
We currently have fixed welding facilities in:
- Pueblo, CO
A customer was facing a problem when transport of stick rail from port to CWR plant to delivery took months and required a dedicated fleet of flat cars and CWR trains. Luckily, Holland had the solution with our portable flash-butt welding experience and expertise.
Tasked with designing and building a fixed plant continuous rail weld line from scratch; one of Holland’s industry partners found themselves in the market for many specialized pieces of equipment.
