Uralvagonzavod’s civilian output plunges 60.5%

Uralvagonzavod Scientific and Production Enterprise’s civilian goods output declined by 60.5% over January to July 2009. At the same time, the civilian goods produced by this company make up 32.7% of the entire industrial branch’s civilian outputs, the Russian Federation Ministry for Industry and Trade reports.

The enterprise has halted its railway carriage production process twice this year because of the Russian Railways Public Company’s zero demand. All in all, Uralvagonzavod has produced 31,870 gondola cars since the beginning of the year, which only comes to 32% of last year’s output. The production of railway platforms has also been halted.

The overall railway cars and machinery output decreased by a total of 58.8% in January-July 2009.
