The Ukrainian industrial company Interpipe for the first time since the beginning of the war developed a new type of wheels for the EU market and even shipped the first experimental batch to the customer.
Interpipe started developing new wheels even before the start of the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine. The main request of the client was a special shape of the rim with a diameter of 840 mm. The R&D center of the company's railway division successfully coped with this task. This is a category 2 wheel made of European standard ER7 steel.
This product is intended for electric rolling stock cars of 1435 mm railways, that is, it can be installed on electric trains for ordinary intercity transportation. Very soon, Ukrainian wheels will be on the carriages of the national railway network of one of the largest EU countries.
