TMH fulfilled its contractual obligations to deliver diesel freight locomotives to Uzbekistan
The Bryansk Machine-Building Plant (BMZ which is part of Transmashholding) has just delivered two 2TE25KM mainline diesel freight locomotives to the state-owned company of the Republic of Uzbekistan “Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combine“.
The locomotives were manufactured for the Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combine in accordance with the contract signed last March.
The Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combine already has a positive experience in operating 2TE25KM mainline diesel freight locomotives. The first two locomotives of this series were delivered to Uzbekistan between late 2019 and early 2020.
Thanks to the commissioning of these modern and powerful locomotives, the Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combine plans to increase its rock mass transport volumes through the tractive power of these locomotives, which are capable of maneuvering with a load of up to 6,000 tonnes. The economic efficiency of the 2TE25KM locomotives is also ensured by lower operating costs.
The 2TE25KM mainline diesel freight locomotive stands out for the simplicity of its maintenance thanks to the easy access to all its components and its high performance. Moreover, the use of diesel locomotives increases the economic efficiency of operation of Uzbekistan’s railway infrastructure and reduces freight delivery times.
To ensure comfortable working conditions for locomotive operators, the 2TE25KM models are equipped with a system for maintaining an optimal microclimate in the control cab, regardless of the outside temperature conditions.
The 2TE25KM mainline diesel freight locomotives are the most modern Russian locomotives of their class. They have been manufactured by the Bryansk Engineering Plant since 2015 and have since proven themselves on the Russian Railways network as well as in large industrial enterprises in Russia and nearby foreign countries. The locomotives work perfectly in various climatic zones: in north-western Russia, the Volga Region, the Krasnodar Krai, the North Caucasus, the Urals, Eastern Siberia, but also in Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan.
