Russia’s machine-building plant supplies locomotives for mining, metallurgical combine in Uzbekistan

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Nov. 13

By Klavdiya Romakayeva - Trend:

Bryansk Machine-Building Plant in Russia supplied two mainline freight diesel locomotives 2TE25KM to Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Plant (NMMC) state enterprise in Uzbekistan, Trend reports citing metalifo.ru.

Mainline freight diesel locomotives 2TE25KM are already successfully operating at NMMC. The first two locomotives of this series were sent to Uzbekistan at the end of last year - beginning of this year.

Due to the commissioning of modern powerful diesel locomotives 2TE25KM, NMMC plans to increase the volume of transportation of rock mass due to the high tractive properties of locomotives capable of driving trains weighing over 6,000 tons.

The economic efficiency of the use of diesel locomotives 2TE25KM also contributes to the reduction of operating costs.

Mainline freight diesel locomotive 2TE25KM is easy to maintain due to the ease of accessibility and manufacturability of the main units. The use of a diesel locomotive makes it possible to increase the profitability of the operation of the railway infrastructure and to reduce the delivery time of goods.

Comfortable working conditions have been created for locomotive crews in 2TE25KM. It is envisaged to maintain an optimal microclimate in the driver's cab under any temperature conditions.

2TE25KM are the most modern domestic locomotives in their class. They have been produced since 2015, and during this time they have proven themselves well on the Russian Railways network, at large industrial enterprises in Russia and neighboring countries.

In addition, locomotives operate successfully in different climatic zones: in the north-west of Russia, in the Volga region, Krasnodar Territory, in the North Caucasus, the Urals, in Eastern Siberia, as well as in Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
