UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 26, 2016. Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s head plant fulfilled Russian Railways’ large order for the production and delivery of nine multifunctional TMV2 vehicles. These have been manufactured and sent to customer.

The company press service reports this was part of Russian Railways’ investment project on the introduction of resource-saving technologies for railway transport.

Russian Railways placed its order for nine TMV2s with Ural Vagon Zavod’s head plant following a tender in late September. The auction procedure was carried out through the corporation’s member enterprise UBT Ural Vagon Zavod.

‘Based on the customer’s requirements, the vehicles were fitted with a radio station and a complex locomotive security system (CLUB) that combines automatic alarm system and an electronic speed meter. Thanks to these appliances, Russian Railways can track all the units currently in use on the rails. Besides, a set of attachable brushes and shovels makes a TMV2 easily transformable into a cleaning/road-sweeping/snow-shoveling device,’ the press service says.

The TMV2s got sent to Krasnoyarsk, Ufa, Novokuznetsk, Chelyabinsk, Kurgan, Orenburg, Ruzayevka, Perm, and (the farthest location) Abakan.
