Bryansk Machine-Building Plant (BMZ), part of Transmashholding, has delivered the first four 2TE25KM mainline locomotives to the national rail company of Kazakhstan, KTZ — Freight Transportation.
According to the contract signed in April 2023, Bryansk Machine-Building Plant will deliver 50 2TE25KM diesel freight locomotives. TMH says that KTZ’s employees highly appreciate the performance and reliability of Bryansk diesel locomotives, as well as the comfortable working conditions of locomotive crews.
The 2TE25KM locomotives meet the most stringent customer requirements and meet environmental standards while proving high power and comfort for drivers. The diesel locomotive is capable of transporting trains weighing up to 6,400 tonnes in any climatic conditions on sections with a complex track profile.
The design of the locomotives is characterised by the accessibility of the main components, which makes it possible to reduce repair and maintenance costs.
The locomotives allow the reduction in fuel consumption and harmful emissions. The vehicles provide efficiency of the system for diagnosing and monitoring of the main parameters as well as for the well-thought-out and comfortable cabin equipment for the driver.
BMZ has been producing 2TE25KM mainline freight locomotives since 2014. They are widely used by the Russian Railways, on the railways of Mongolia and used by Ulan Bator Railway and Turkmenistan, and at large industrial enterprises in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan.
In Kazakhstan, the Russian rolling stock manufacturer has delivered a 2TE25KM diesel freight locomotive to Shubarkol Komir one of Kazakhstan’s largest thermal coal producers in 2019.
The 2TE25KM freight locomotive is a mainline freight two-section diesel locomotive with axle traction force adjustment. 90% of the components integrated into the locomotive construction are locally designed and produced.
In 2020, TMH has supplied Russian Railways 40 2TE25KM diesel locomotives for freight transport services. In Russia, excepting Russian Railways, TMH has also supplied Norilsk Nickel seven 2TE25KM diesel locomotives in 2022.
