Freight One will invest 350 million rubles in an enterprise in the Altai Territory
Freight One will create a railroad car repair complex at Zarinskaya station of the West Siberian Railway. The total investment will be about 350 million rubles. Owing to the new facilities being launched, at least 120 new jobs will appear in the city. The project is being implemented as a part of Freight One's repair strategy aimed at the improvement of the rolling stock quality and the customer service level.
“We are glad that in January this year, our enterprise, Zarinskaya Railroad Car Repair Company, was included in the register of residents of the Advanced Social and Economic Development Territory in Zarinsk. We expect that this status will expand our opportunities for the project to be implemented. We support the municipal authorities’ desire to create effective partnerships with businesses that will contribute to the development of the economy of the entire region,” Evgeny Dolzhenko, Director of Freight One’s Novosibirsk branch, commented.
By 2022, the company expects to commission a roller bearing wheel shop where wheelsets will be repaired for railroad cars of Freight One and other owners. At present the design documentation is being examined. After a positive opinion has been received, the selected site will start to be reconstructed and the necessary equipment will start to be installed.
