United Wagon Company and the rail operator Logistics 1520 signed a contract for the delivery of 300 hopper cars for mineral fertilizers.
Model 19-9835-01 with a payload capacity of 76.7 t and body space of 101 m3 is the most efficient in transporting high density bulk cargo. Special two-element car body coating based on vinyl copolymer provides strong protection against corrosive loads. Extended maintenance intervals of up to 1 million km enable to reduce significantly operating costs throughout the car’s life cycle.
The 19-9835-01 hopper car was added to the product range of the UWC Group in 2013. The share of these hopper cars in sales of mineral freight cars by Russian manufacturers from 2013 to 2022 exceeded 45%.
