“Transmashholding” builds 8 ‘Donchak’ electric locomotives for Transoil group


Novocherkassk The Novocherkassk Electric Locomotives Plant (NEVZ, part of AO Transmashholding) delivered 8 DC freight locomotives ‘Donchak’ with direct current traction motor 2ES4K to Transoil Transport and Logistics Group. 

The agreement on delivery of electric locomotives was signed in 2017.  

‘Donchak’ electric locomotives have been used by Transoil since 2013. They proved to be powerful and reliable in operation. 

New electric locomotives will be operated on Kirishi-Luzhskaya-Neftyanaya directions. Operation of the 2ES4K mainline freight DC electric locomotives ‘Donchak’ allows to accelerate to the maximum allowed train speed on ascents and climb them due to the accumulated kinetic energy of the train. 

The locomotive design comprises motor-axle rolling bearings, to extend intervals between technical maintenance and repairs, as well as reduce operating costs. Under the terms of agreement, the electric locomotives are equipped with vacuum-type WC. 

Currently JSC Transmashholding is the only Russian manufacturer producing diesel and electric locomotives of all existing types - for different applications and current type. 

OJSC “RZD” (Russian Railways) is the major operator of 2ES4K electric locomotives (over 550 sections). Locomotives are operated on the North Caucasus Railway and Oktyabrskaya Railway.
