    This is Great News to Start with russia

    Russian Railways GTh1-002 main gas turbine locomotive enters service

    Russian Railways has delivered a GT1h-002 main gas turbine locomotive for operation on the Sverdlovsk railways route.

    The GT1h-002 main gas turbine locomotive, which runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG), will begin regular operation on the Egorshino–Alapayevsk–Serov-Sortirovochny route. Trials will now be carried out on a non-electrified test route north of the Sverdlovsk mainline, where there are plans to start operating such vehicles.

    GTh1-002 Main Gas Turbine Locomotive drove train weighing 9,000 tons


    The locomotive has been designed to drive trains with increased weight and length. In May 2016, during a test run, the GTh1-002 drove a train weighing 9,000 tons on the 700km Surgut–Voinovka route without the need to refuel en route.


    Sverdlovsk Railway’s has the necessary infrastructure to operate the GT1h-002 including, extensive non-electrified sections of different profiles suitable for gas turbine locomotives. Furthermore, a LNG complex was built near Yekaterinburg with a special station for fuelling rolling stock.


    The introduction forms part of the Energy Strategy for JSC Russian Railways and is an alternative to expensive diesel fuel. The move will also help to reduce harmful emissions by rail freight transportation.

    Russian Traxx unveiled at Engels locomotive plant inauguration

    http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/traction-rolling-stock/single-view/view/russian-traxx-unveiled-at-engels-locomotive-plant-inauguration.html



    RUSSIA: The prototype 1 520 mm gauge Bombardier Traxx F120MS locomotive was unveiled at a ceremony marking the inauguration of First Locomotive Co’s factory at Engels in Saratov oblast on August 19.

    The First Locomotive Co joint venture of Russian investors and Bombardier Transportation was established in 2012 with the aim of bringing modern development and manufacturing technologies to Russia. The factory in Engels has been built in two years at cost of 6·7bn roubles, funded by Vnesheconombank, the state Bank for Development & Foreign Economic Affairs, and will have the capacity to produce up to 150 twin-section electric freight locomotives a year for Russia and the 1520 region.

    Designated the Type 2EV120 in Russia, the 120 km/h dual-system Traxx F120MS is designed to haul trains of 7 000 to 9 000 tonnes in temperatures between -55°C and +45°C.

    It has a maximum rating of 9·6 MW and continuous rating of 8·8 MW, and can operate under 25 kV 50 Hz or 3 kV DC electrification. A 500 kW last-mile diesel engine could also be fitted, installed in an isolated compartment in each locomotive section.

    The locomotive is equipped with Bombardier’s Mitrac control system, Flexx Power 140 RU bogies for axleloads up to 25 tonnes, asynchronous traction motors and Knorr-Bremse braking systems.

    The air-conditioned cab meets the latest Russian comfort standards, with two fixed and one folding seats, a fridge and a microwave. The side windows can be used as an emergency fire escape using a rope ladder.


    Speaking at the factory inauguration ceremony, Chairman of First Locomotive Co Stanislav Gamzalov said an initial order for the locomotives has been agreed, subject to the prototype successfully obtaining certification for operation. There has been interest from potential customers in the CIS and Baltic states, he added.

    Vnesheconombank Chairman Vladimir Dmitriev said it would be an attractive product for export markets, and noted that Azerbaijan Railways representatives attended the inauguration ceremony.

    Governor of Saratov oblast Valery Radaev said the Russian economy currently faces difficult conditions, and the new factory would support growth through innovation and the conservation of resources. His advisor on economics affairs, Konstantin Murenin, said the opening of the new plant was ‘an event of national scale’, which would support the development of a regional transport engineering cluster and associated supply chain and serve as a ‘shining example’ of how to undertake large scale investment projects.

    According to the NATO MSM, Russia is bankrupt and can't feed itself. I am feeling so much cognitive dissonance.

    Someone should point out to them that Russia is lending Iran $1B for electrifying their railway system
