Nornickel updates four locomotives

July 09, 2020

In accordance with the Nornickel development program, cargo transportation by the Norilsk railway is growing.

The company announced the upgrade of the rolling stock fleet back in 2011. Since then, the Technological Railway Transport Enterprise has increased the volume of transportation from 16 million tons of cargo to 18–19 million tons.

The enterprise is systematically modernizing railway equipment by increasing volumes. Last year, three shunting locomotives underwent an update on Hungarian-Russian technology. All equipment is completely replaced by European. It took six months to transform the locomotives.
Four shunting locomotives will be updated at TRTE this year. Two of them have already been dismantled and sent to Dudinka to be transported to the mainland.

“Our company plans to modernize three more shunting locomotives in 2021. In addition, it is planned to obtain seven newly manufactured railway vehicles, thus bringing the fleet to 17 units. In total, 35 shunting locomotives of various series are operating in the company,” said Alexander Bezkrovny, chief engineer of the Technological Railway Transport Enterprise.
According to the chief engineer, the Norilsk railway should be replenished with a new 2TE25 KM main locomotive to replace the locomotive of the legendary 2TE116 series in November-December.
