Kriukov Car Building Works (KCBW, Poltava region) has completed the delivery of freight cars to Turkmenistan in the framework of a contract for the supply of 750 wagons signed at the beginning of 2016, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities Services Hennadiy Zubko has said.
“Six months ago we agreed with the Turkmen side on the supply of 750 wagons made by KCBW. The contract has been successfully executed. All the cars have been delivered to the customer”, he said.
According to him, in view of this positive experience of cooperation Ukrainian railcar enterprises are ready to participate in the renewal and modernization of Azerbaijan Railways rolling stock.
“This is a promising direction in the context of intensification of rail traffic after the completion of building the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars rail route in 2016, as well as taking into account prospects of railway communication with Iran. The opening of this route and its continuation to Iran will provide Ukraine with access to the Iranian market and Azerbaijan to the European one”, Zubko said. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
