Ural Mining Metallurgical Co has awarded United Wagon Co’s TikhvinChemMash plant contracts to supply 73 Type 15-9545 sulphuric acid tank wagons by the end of January.

United Wagon Co and Uralchem-Trans are to develop a service centre at Murashi on RZD’s Gorky Railway which would repair and maintain wagons from UWC’s Tikhvin plant. Uralchem-Trans is now only buying high-capacity wagons, and it intends to work with UWC to increase the share of modern designs in its fleet from 14% to 25% by 2021.
