The Russian freight car manufacturer United Wagon Company (UWC) will supply the mining company Polymetal with 55 dump cars by the end of H1/2020. The batch of cars will be delivered to the Varvara plant for operation in Kazakhstan.

Varvara, Polymetal's first operation in Kazakhstan, is a gold and copper mine with a modern 4.2 Mtpa processing plant. An excellent transportation infrastructure and inexpensive energy make it a perfect fit for becoming a regional processing hub. Varvara includes an open-pit gold mine and the Komarovskoye gold deposit.

The UWC-produced dump cars are designed for transporting and automatically unloading overburden and hard rock.
