Ukrainian Railways to Expand Cooperation with CRRC
Ukrainian Railways (Ukrzaliznytsya, UZ) is planning to expand cooperation with CRRC, the RZD-Partner reports. A decision to establish working groups was reached in course of Ukrzaliznytsya’s visit to China.
“While Ukrainian manufacturers can produce freight cars and passenger coaches, we need to attract global manufacturers of state-of-the-art locomotives”, Ukrzaliznytsya Chairman Wojciech Balczun said at the meeting with CRRC International management. “We need to find an optimal solution to modernize diesel locomotives and are waiting respective offers from Chinese manufacturers”.
Chinese manufacturers have already proposed the Ukrainian operator to test the BKG-2 locomotive earlier designed for Belarus Railways.
