Tver Carriage Works completed the Delivery of Coaches to Private Operators in Kazakhstan

Tver Carriage Works (JSC "TVZ" is a part of JSC "Transmashholding") has fulfilled a contract on the delivery of 45 passenger coaches to Kazakhstan. This is the first time the private operators have become the customers of the rolling stock. 

The government of the Republic of Kazakhstan became the driving force in the renewal of the rolling stock used by private passenger transport operators.  

It proposed to the operators to participate in the tender for the operation of the social routes subsidized by the State, on the other hand, requiring a high quality of transportation through, among other, upgrading of the rolling stock. Following the contest, at the end of 2016, the social routes were distributed between the largest national operator, the Kazakhstan Temir Zholy (the Kazakhstan Railways) and several private companies, part of which applied for the purchase of new coaches at Transmashholding. 

As a result of negotiations, agreements were reached and deals were between JSC "Russian Export Center", JSC "Roseximbank" and JSC "BRK-Leasing" (Kazakhstan). In accordance with thereof, the Tver Carriage Works manufactured and supplied to the customers 39 couchette coaches (model 61-4447.02) and 6 compartment coaches (series 61-4440). All delivered rolling stock is designed for the operation at a speed of 160 km/h with the life cycle of 40 years. 

The coaches are equipped with environmentally friendly WC units, air conditioning systems, and water disinfection system. For each passenger, there is a personal outlet for recharging electronic devices. The most significant distinguishing feature of coaches of these series, delivered to Kazakhstan earlier, is the advanced control panel, developed on the basis of a modern monitoring and diagnostic system. 

The specialists of the operating companies Turksib Astana LLP and Arlan-Trans-Astana LLP got acquainted with the specifics of the operation of the new control panel, the particularities of operation and maintenance of the new compartment and couchette coaches during the training that they received at the TVZ training center. 

During the conclusion and execution of contracts, a financing scheme was put in place taking into account the State support for the development of national industry and export supplies, using the potential of JSC "Russian Export Center" and JSC "Roseximbank".
