January 14, 2016. Ural Locomotives manufactured the record-setting 113 Sinara (2ES6) freight locos in 2015, the company press service reports.

Sinara 2ES6 is one of the first Russian new-generation freight locos to be used by Russian Railways. A pilot sample was presented on December 1, 2006 and certified for serial-scale production in June 2008. Starting from this year, Sinara 2ES6 is used at Sverdlovsk Railways. The plant has made 561 locos altogether so far.

Sinara is an innovative product: over 80% of all the technological solutions it took to produce it have never been used in Russian loco-building industry before. The loco has improved technical parameters and lower maintenance expenses and is more reliable and safer than its earlier versions.
