TMH will repair up to 500 engines per year by 2023
Kolomna Locomotive Works (part of Transmashholding) is implementing a project to increase the volume of diesel engine repairs.

The project is implemented in two stages. In the first stage, an engine repair shop will be established at the Kolomna plant. The company will modernize the workshop, purchase and put into operation new equipment for diesel engine repair. It is planned to increase the repair capacity from 50 to 250 engines per year by summer 2022.

The second phase of the project includes shop remodeling, equipment and network upgrades, which will increase the number of engines repaired to 500 per year. The capacity of some technological operations and test benches is expected to double. This phase is expected to be completed by the summer of 2023. The company plans to invest nearly 1 billion rubles in this project.

Once the factory repair is completed, the diesel engines will undergo the same test cycle as the new engines. This will ensure their high quality and significantly extend their service life.

The program aims to increase the potential for diesel engine repair, create additional jobs at the “Kolomna Locomotive Works” plant and meet Russian Railways’ need for repaired diesel engines. However, the main objective of the company is to organize the repair of D49 model engines.

D49 (26/26) diesel engines of 500-4500 kW are manufactured in series by the “Kolomna Locomotive Works” plant and are used in the construction of new diesel locomotives, repowering of existing locomotives, in nuclear power, shipbuilding and other sectors. In total, the plant has already produced more than 18,000 such diesel engines. Each year, Kolomna Locomotive Works delivers between 320 and 500 D49 diesel engines to its customers.

The diesel engine repair project at the “Kolomna Locomotive Works” plant is being carried out as part of the company’s overall technical development plan. Between 2018 and 2022, Transmashholding will invest almost 12 billion rubles in this program.
