2 new freight diesel locomotives manufactured by CRRC Ziyang CO., LTD (China) joined the fleet of “Demirýollary” Open Joint-Stock Company.
The new freight diesel locomotives consist of two cars, have higher power and traction, and the speed limit they can develop is 100 km/h. The declared characteristics will make it possible to attach larger freight trains to them on mainline railways and increase the speed of freight transportation. This is especially relevant in connection with the increasing importance of Turkmenistan as a transit hub between Europe and Asia.
In the production of diesel locomotives, international safety and environmental requirements are met.
Another 13 cars will arrive in the country before January 2023.
