Description

New generation hopper car of model 19-9549-03 is equipped with the bogie with an axle load of 25 tf.

The car is designed to carry a broad variety of mineral fertilizers. Its body volume increased to 120 m³ represents an important competitive edge as it is especially efficient in transporting lightweight freight and allows increasing load capacity to 76 t (up to +6 t of freight in comparison with other similar railcar models). A special two-compound coating is used to safely protect the car body’s interior from hazardous materials it carries. Increased maintenance intervals of up to 1 million km or 8 years reduce the railcar’s lifecycle cost almost three-fold.

Producer: Tikhvin Freight Car Building Plant, JSC.
