Ukraine invests in electric traction
Another MoU has been signed and sealed: Ukrainian Railways (UZ/Ukrzaliznytsia) and Bombardier have agreed to explore the creation of joint industrial activities in Ukraine to rapidly upgrade Ukrainian Railways’ electric locomotive fleet. UZ is Europe’s largest rail cargo operator and around 66% of the country’s railway lines are used for heavy traffic.
UZ cooperates with railways of Russia, Belarus, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary, and supports international rail traffic with 40 border crossing points. In addition, the rail service provider serves 18 Ukrainian seaports in the Black Sea and in the Sea of Azov basin. (ben)
