Transmashholding has shipped three 2TE25KM freight locomotives to Mongolia on December 25, manufactured by Bryansk Engineering Plant (BMZ) for Ulan Bator Railway.
The 2TE25KM diesel locomotive is the most modern domestic diesel locomotive designed with advanced technical solutions. 2TE25KM is a freight mainline two-section locomotive with AC-DC electrical transmission with single-axle traction control. As compared with diesel locomotives of mass production, 2TE25KM loco can haul freight trains, which are at average heavier by 20%, with reduced costs of operation. This is achieved due to a higher engine capacity factor.
The locomotives are specially designed for Mongolia’s climatic conditions, according to the customer’s specifications. Certain changes were made to the design of the diesel locomotive for Ulan Bator Railway regarding the diesel generator, the air cleaning system and the high-voltage system.
Currently, Ulan Bator Railway is operating two 2TE25KM main freight diesel locomotives produced by Bryansk Engineering Plant.
