DeloPorts acquired new motorized freight carrier within renovation program at KSK Grain Terminal
DeloPorts (a stevedoring asset of Delo Group), received a new motorized freight carrier WRT-1 as part of the equipment renewal program at the KSK Grain Terminal. The purchase agreement was signed in July 2022.
WRT-1 was made in August 2022 in Belgorod, it has a tractive force of up to 10 cars. The main feature of this equipment is the use of Russian-made components. The assembly from Russian details will avoid difficulties with the purchase of spare parts for its maintenance.
Igor Yakovenko, CEO of DeloPorts, commented: “The purchase of the Russian-made motorized freight carrier made of locally produced components is both a planned company technical component update and a step towards our autonomy in the technological issue.
Currently WRT-1 has no competitors with such tractive force among the locomotives produced in the Russian Federation. Thus, we will solve all shunting-related production issues more quickly, saving customers’ time and further increasing the throughput capacity of the Terminal ”.
