Under the contract, in 2019 United Wagon Company will supply to Uralkali 500 hopper cars, model 19-9835-01, having an increased carrying capacity. These cars designed to carry mineral fertilisers.
CEO at Uralkali:
Our company has been using TVSZ hopper cars to carry mineral fertilisers since 2015. We opted for the new generation fleet based on considerations of economic efficiency as well as the possibility to raise the traffic capacities of both the Russian Railways network and the connecting tracks of our mines and port. This contract, implemented as a part of our long-term fleet development strategy, will undoubtedly strengthen the reliability and stability of our supplies to customers.
