A wheel and roller shop has been launched into operation at the railcar repair depot of Diesel Plant LLC (Kryvyi Rih), which is part of the Aurum Group. The group of companies has thus equipped the railcar repair depot with all the equipment necessary for performance of the full cycle of repair works on gondola cars, covered hoppers for grain and cement, and flatcars, as well as for performance of uncoupling repairs.
The Aurum Group announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.
“The 1,000th repaired car left the Diesel Plant’s depot literally in June, and our next step is the commissioning of a wheel and roller shop today. From now on, the depot will autonomously perform the full range of repair work on freight cars to order from our customers,” said Alona Lebedieva, the founder of Aurum Group.
As reported earlier, the Aurum Group opened the railcar repair depot at the Diesel Plant in Kryvyi Rih in September 2019. In the same year, it was announced that a wheel and roller shop for production of wheelsets for freight rail would be opened at the depot.
