The railway operator Locotrans received the first batch of timber platforms with increased payload capacity. Total scope of supply is 250 units. The distinctive feature of platforms is a capacity of 74 t. The platforms are designed for the transport of 3 – 13 m long timber.
Specialized freight cars of model 13-6852 have been manufactured in TikhvinSpetsMash in cooperation with Tikhvin Freight Car Building Plant. TikhvinSpetsMash is a new plant of the railway holding RPC “United Wagon Company” prepared to be commissioned.
“Given that the market is on a new stage of development, innovative freight cars are indeed the main competitive advantage of the operator. It is important not only to deliver freight, but also to optimize the costs for delivery and freight transportation time. The application of new developments will contribute to reaching a new level of safe and trouble-free operation of freight cars, which will undoubtedly decrease the number of uncoupling repairs and ensure freight safety,” Alexey Petrov, CEO at Locotrans.
