After making a splash at Rowing WA’s Corporate Cup regatta earlier this year, Roy Hill is supporting WA’s next generation of female rowers by donating an Empacher racing eight to the Swan River Rowing Club.

The world-class racing hull is set to arrive from Germany soon and will support the women’s youth program at the Club, helping them reach their full potential.

Wabtec and leading iron ore miner Roy Hill, majority-owned by Hancock Prospecting, have debuted the world's first 100% battery-powered, heavy-haul locomotive for mainline service.
