Evraz signed two contracts to supply rails to Brazil. Evraz ZSMK will ship to TIISA Construction Company four thousand tonnes of 60E1-compliant rails. Head-hardened, with improved wear- and contact fatigue resistance, these rails will be laid into a 30-kilometers’ track to connect the largest Latin American pulp mill to the network of Brazil’s key railway operator, ALL (Latin American Logistics).
The other contract, for three hundred tonnes of head-hardened 60E2 rails, was signed with BR RAILPARTS. This lot will be utilised to fit out the turnout switches in a new railway constructed by the Brazilian Government.
Evraz scheduled first rail shipments to its Brazilian customers for February, 2015.
For the first time the company will ship to Latin America rails produced at its West-Siberian Steel Plant.
