  /  Performance Overview / International Activity Projects /  Western Manufacturers Cooperation

Cooperation with Western Rolling Stock Manufacturers

New agreements were achieved with the world’s largest train and rail machinery producers: Siemens, Alstom, Bombardier, Talgo, Tatravagonka, Knorr-Bremse, including the acquisition of fundamentally new types of rolling stock and traction rolling stock and the localization of their production in Russia.

In March 2012, the first Lastochka passenger train, Siemens Desiro Rus, adapted for operation in Russia arrived in the Baltic Sea port Ust-Luga from the Mukran port of the German city Sassnitz on the Baltic Sea. JSC "Russian Railways“plans to buy 54 trains of this type in total, of which 16 trains, according to the agreement with Siemens, will be assembled in Russia.

Given the strong demand for high-speed passenger transportation, JSC “Russian Railways” has signed an agreement with Siemens to acquire eight additional Velaro RUS Sapsan high speed trains. They will be operated on the Moscow — St. Petersburg route in 2015.

High-speed trains from the Spanish manufacturer Talgo are expected to be operated on the Moscow — Kiev and Moscow — Berlin routes.

In January 2012 in Madrid the JSC “Railway Transport Research Institute” and Patents Talgo signed a framework contract to adapt passenger rolling stock to be operated on the 1520 mm gauge railway line.

The contract with Patentes Talgo was signed with the assistance of JSC “Russian Railways” and the Spanish state railways operator ADIF.

Cooperation with West European companies helps speed up the modernization of the JSC “Russian Railways” rolling stock, and eliminate the accumulated technological lag in this area. Projects related to technology transfer bring the whole of the Russian mechanical engineering industry to a new level.
