NIKOLAEV Locomotive Repair Plant (NTRZ), Ukraine, has announced it will repair and modernise 55 Adtranz series locomotives for Egyptian National Railways (ENR), with an option to modernise up to 145 more.
The modernisation work will take place in both Ukraine and Egypt, with NTRZ set to create a service centre in Egypt.
“We will carry out deep modernisation of locomotives with the installation of new diesel engines, new power and auxiliary equipment, and new microprocessor control systems, which will significantly improve economic indicators of locomotive operation and reduce maintenance costs,” says NTRZ director, Mr Sergei Roy.
NTRZ said the locomotives are younger than those from the post-Soviet area that it would normally refurbish, with the Egyptian units produced between 1996 and 2010.
