Tihvin Assembly Plant “Titran-Express” (TAP “Titran-Express”, part of railway holding RPC “United Wagon Company”) has successfully completed recertification of the Federal Budgetary Organization “Register of Certification on the Federal Railway Transport” for the manufacture of wheelsets РВ2Ш-957-Г for freight cars.
TAP production capacity of wheelsets amounts up to 2 thsd. items per annum.
Wheelsets РВ2Ш-957-Г are intended to complete bogies with 25 tf axle load and are characterized by high technical properties (in particular, high strength and elasticity), which increase running smoothness of the rolling stock, decrease impact on track and provide design speed of 120 km/h.
Experts predict a high demand for wheelsets amid the increase in new generation freight cars manufacture. According to the agency “Infoline”, the production volume of the Russian freight car building plants can amount to 40-45 thsd. freight cars per annum in the course of 2016-2020; up to 90% of that volume accounts for innovative rolling stock.
