Locomotives for Kazakhstan

At a ceremony held last week, Russian manufacturer Sinara Transport Machines (STM) handed over the first batch of 2ES7 Black Granite freight two-section electric locomotives to Silkway Transit, Kazakhstan’s first private railway carrier. The first three locomotives have already been put in operation.


Under a contract signed earlier this year, the Kazakh company is to receive 22 2ES7 freight electric locomotives manufactured at the Ural Locomotives plant by the end of 2022.


The electric locomotives will be used on the heavily loaded sections of Karaganda - Nur-Sultan - Pavlodar and Shekment - Alma-Ata. (ben)
