The Far Eastern Railway has introduced a new service workshop for servicing locomotives in Komsomolsk-on-Amur

The service workshop was built in Komsomolsk-on-Amur as part of the completed reconstruction of the locomotive maintenance center, the corporate communications service of the Far Eastern Railway (FER, the Russian Railways branch) reported.

"The new shop will facilitate the operational work. In addition, it will improve the technical condition of locomotives and increase the volume of transportation along the Baikal-Amur Mainline, "the words of the vice-president of Russian Railways, the head of the thrust director Oleg Valinsky, who participated in the opening ceremony, are quoted in the message. According to the head of the Far East Railroad, Nikolai Maklygin, it is noted that about 36% of all export cargoes go through the Far East, and one of the priority areas is the Vanino-Sovgavan transport hub, which makes the reconstruction necessary.

As reported after the reconstruction of the VET expanded the production cycle. Intermediate repair was added to more complex and time-consuming types of work, one of the most popular services. In the opinion of the specialists of the thrust direction, this will improve the technology of driving trains throughout the Eastern BAM and reduce the cost of repairs. The main specialization of the new service shop is the current repair of locomotives and turning of wheel sets. The production capacity of the hull is designed for servicing up to 3,6 thousand diesel locomotives per year.
