UrBC, Yekaterinburg, May 30, 2017. Sinara Group and Siemens’s joint venture Ural Locomotives’ Granit 2ES10, an electric freight locomotive with an a-synchronic drive, got certified for compliance with the Customs Union’s technical requirements, Sinara Group’s PR Center reports.

‘The certification tests of Granit’s three-section version were carried out at the All-Russian Railway Transport Scientific Research Institute’s experimental railway ring in Scherbinka and at Sverdlovsk Railways. The loco was subject to pull and energy efficiency tests, electromagnetic compatibility tests, and functional performance tests. 2ES10 was also tested successfully for compliance with fire safety, job safety, and personnel healthcare requirements. The certification body inspected the plant’s production premises in January through April 2017 and confirmed that the entire production cycle meets all of the Customs Union’s technical requirements. All the tests produced positive outcomes,’ the Center says.

Under the terms of the contract Ural Locomotives have with Russian Railways, the former is to supply 221 2ES10 locos to the latter in 2017 and 2018. So far, the plant has handed 139 two- and three-section locos over to customer. This is the kind of loco make that proves most popular for railway freight forwarding at the moment.

Ten more three-section locos will get supplied to Russian Railways before the end of the year. These are all meant for Sverdlovsk Railways.
