Transmashholding subsidiary Kolomensky Zavod has delivered its 1000th 18-9DG diesel generator set designed for the 2TE25Km model Bryansk freight diesel locomotive as part of a deal for 196 generator sets delivered to BMZ in 2016. The locomotive optimises the haulage of freight trains whilst reducing operating costs by improving engine capacity and increasing the weight on driving axles. The 2TE25Km locomotive is the first of its kind in Russia to be certified under the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union
