Uzbekistan to buy a new batch of electric locomotives in China

Botschaft Usbekistan, July 22, 2019

Uzbekistan will purchase 24 units of electric locomotives (16 freight and 8 cargo-passenger) in China.

Uzbekiston Temir Yollari and the Chinese consortium CNTIC-CRRC DLOCO signed a contract for the supply of 24 units of electric locomotives (16 freight and 8 cargo-passenger).

The document was signed after negotiations between representatives of Uzbekistan Temir Yollari and the consortium CNTIC-CRRC DLOCO.

The meeting noted the dynamic development of relations between our countries, in particular, fruitful cooperation in the railway field.

New locomotives will be purchased in the framework of the project “Improving the efficiency of the railway”, as well as the implementation of certain measures in the investment project “Renovation of the locomotive fleet”.

This project is carried out at the expense of borrowed funds from the Asian Development Bank. The implementation period is 2019-2020.

The new batch of locomotives is designed for passenger service and cargo transportation, including heavy ones, capable of carrying cargo in mountain conditions.

The modern technologies used on the new locomotives, along with energy savings, reduce fuel consumption.

It should be noted that currently more than 50 percent of the existing locomotives have been updated in the locomotive park of Uzbekiston Temir Yollari.
