Transmashholding is the prize-winner in JSC RZD contest for the prime-quality of rolling stock


JSC Transmashholding, the largest railway rolling stock producer in Russia, was the awardee in the contest for the prime-quality of rolling stock and complex technical systems announced by the Russian Railway in 2017.

Two places in the ‘Rolling Stock’ contest category passed to Transmashholding’s industrial plants. 

The second place was taken by Novocherkassk Electric Locomotive Plant for 3ES5K electric mainline locomotive. 

3ES5K ‘Ermak’ three-section electric locomotive is a reliable vehicle with the excellent traction and running performance. The locomotive has proved itself in severe climatic and terrain conditions. It is successfully operated in Transbaikal Region, East Siberia and Far East to carry over-tonnaged train sets on track sections with the challenging terrain; the locomotive is capable of hauling trains weighing up to 6300 tons. In the period from the production launch in 2007 and until now, NEVZ manufactured 807 3ES5K locos. 

2TE25KM mainline freight diesel locomotive with two sections manufactured by the Bryansk Engineering Plant was awarded the third place. The locomotive was designed in 2014 by cooperation of the experts of Transmashholding, Bryansk Engineering Plant and the Russian Railways. 

In comparison with diesel locomotives of mass series, 2TE25KM provides for an increase in the weight of hauled freight trains, and a reduction in operating costs. More than two hundred diesel locomotives successfully operate in Bryansk-II, Krasnodar and Ershovo depots. 

Diploma delivery ceremony was held on August 30 at the VI International exhibition "EXPO 1520" in Shcherbinka, Moscow Region.
