2,000 mineral hopper cars ordered
In Russia, Euro Chem and freight car manufacturer UWC have signed a contract for the supply of 2,000 new generation hopper cars for mineral fertilisers. All the relevant agreements are set to be fully implemented by June 2022, with the complete batch of railcars to be dispatched to the customer by that time.
The hopper cars for mineral fertilisers will be operated within the fleet of the National Transportation Company (NTC), a provider of transport and logistics services to Euro Chem.
The 19-9835-01 hopper car can carry a wide range of mineral fertilisers owing to its increased load capacity of 76.7 t and a body volume of 101 cbm. (ben)
