7 December 2017 (09:07)

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 7, 2017. The Association of American Railroads (AAR) allowed EVRAZ Holding’s Nizhniy Tagil Integrated Metallurgical Works (NTMK) to supply any amount of H36 wheels to North America, EVRAZ Holding Ural’s corporate relations center reports.

The wheels will have to undergo additional testing after the first 100,000 miles.

‘These H36 wheels were first used experimentally at the United States’ largest railroad BNSF Railway and served for 300,000 miles (some 500,000 km) trouble-free. The wheels were then tested at North American labs and depots, with the latter confirming that EVRAZ NTMK wheels had no internal defects despite the impressive mileage,’ the press service said.

‘EVRAZ NTMK keeps building its share of both the Russian and the foreign markets. The company has everything necessary to make various types of great quality wheels,’ says the Managing Director of EVRAZ Nizhniy Tagil Integrated Metallurgical Works and EVRAZ Kachkanar Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise Alexei Kushnarev.

H36 wheels are currently the most popular exported product the plant makes. The company ships several thousand wheels to customers every month.
