The first experience of using unique tanks has become international
The UWC company is bringing to the market the first articulated tanks in the CIS, according to the website of the research and production сorporation, following the signing of a contract with one of the largest railway operators and owners of a fleet of freight cars in Kazakhstan. In total, 400 such cars for transportation of liquefied hydrocarbon gases will be delivered to the neighbouring state.
The articulated tank is a unique model of a freight car for the CIS market, which has no analogues in its technical and operational characteristics. The design features of the articulated car will provide significant savings in the transportation of goods. At the same time, thanks to its design, the new UWC tanks can be operated in conjunction with standardised railway cars and can be easily serviced at standard terminals.
According to a representative of the railway car customer company, the first shipment of products in articulated tanks is a huge breakthrough for the entire rail freight industry. The operation of cars of such a unique design brings a lot of advantages to all the participants of the transportation process. At the same time, the first experience of using articulated cars in Area 1520 immediately became international.
According to last year’s results, Russian transport engineering enterprises increased foreign supplies of their products to 50.1 billion rubles, which is 16 percent more than in 2017. The introduction of new models of cars is determined by the development Strategy of the industry until 2030 as a priority. In addition, we would also like to remind you that the production of a new gas locomotive of exceptional efficiency has been started.
