February 18, 2015. Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s experts met with the representatives of Rift Valley Railways, a company that maintains the railways in Kenya and Rwanda.

According to the corporation’s press service, the African company’s delegates paid a visit to the company’s head plant in Nizhniy Tagil in order to talk over their cooperation prospects. Uralvagonzavod might, for example, compete for the contract for 480 meter-gauge railway platforms. The delegates also took an inertest in Uralcryomash’s tank containers.

‘The terms of delivery we offer, as well as our prices and approach to quality all outstrip those proposed by our competitors and fully meet the customer’s needs. The customer representatives were taken on a guided tour of Uralvagonzavod’s open air museum so that they could see the corporation’s entire range of rolling stock makes,’ the corporation’s press service says.

Uralvagonzavod’s head plant is considering producing one meter-gauge railway vehicles. This gauge is the one that the developing countries of Africa and South America rely on. Uralvagonzavod has more to offer its customers on this market than its rivals: for one, the price and the quality of its produce are among the plant’s competitive advantages.
