RS-Trans Orders 25 Tank Cars from UWC

Freight forwarding company RS-Trans has ordered 25 new-generation tank cars from UWC.

RS-Trans intends to use these tank cars for the transportation of sulphuric acid. In 2019 RS-Trans purchased box cars from UWC.

TikhvinChemMash launched the mass production of the 15-9545 tank cars in 2015. The bogies have a 25t axle load to allow higher capacities to be transported – 77 tons. They also increase operational reliability. Each tank car has a maintenance interval of either 1 million kilometres or eight years.

These tank cars have a tank volume of 44 cubic metres. That is 15 percent more than for a tank car with bogies with a 23.5t axle load.

Aleksey Serov, CEO, RS-Trans, said:

“Our company has been in the business of railway transportation since 2007. By now, we have risen to the level of providing integrated freightage by rail, cargo forwarding and terminal handling services. The policy of RS-Trans is pivoted towards an individual approach to each client, quick response to any request and optimisation of the route network. Nothing listed above would be possible without efficient rolling stock. The acquisition of UWC tank cars on 255 axle load bogies to transport sulphuric acid enables us to upgrade our client service and we plan to further ramp up our fleet with new generation railcars, because they demonstrate excellent performance.”
