Rolling stock manufacturer Tüdemsaş has unveiled its own design of articulated container wagon, developed since 2013 in partnership with national railway TCDD.
The 29·5 m long twin-section Type Sggmrs wagon has a tare weight of 25·5 tonnes, which permits a payload of 109·5 tonnes, 4 tonnes more than existing heavier wagon designs. It is designed for operation at up to 120 km/h, while reducing noise and offering lower production and life cycle costs.
The wagon project forms part of a wider national strategy to increase Turkey’s domestic industrial and export capabilities. This includes the ‘National Train’ electric multiple-unit project which is being co-ordinated by Tüvasaş.
