UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 21, 2016. Russian Maritime Register recently issued safety acceptance certificates for Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s KTsKh.PKM-25/0.4 composite body containers.

According to the company press service, this means the tank containers can now be used for freight forwarding by rail, car, and sea.

The tank container is meant for transportation and storage of a wide range of chemicals; the body made of composite materials weighs 4,500 kg (which is lighter than the earlier versions) and has an increased freight capacity of 31,500 kg. Besides, these composite materials are corrosion-resistant, which means the container’s lifespan comes to thirty years now. Also, the thing costs considerably less to maintain, since the expensive steam treatment after every time the tank has been filled with chemicals is no longer necessary: simply rinsing the container with warm water after every use will suffice.
