Ukrainian industrial company Interpipe continues to hold the economic front of the country, increasing exports of products, in particular, to African countries, the company's press service reported.
Recently, Interpipe successfully shipped Moroccan railways - Office National des Chemins de Fer - a large batch of wheels with a volume of more than 2600 pieces.
ONCF usually holds tenders on average once every three years, concluding long-term agreements with suppliers. Under this contract, Moroccan railways use Ukrainian products to upgrade the fleet of Fiat passenger cars of the AnsaldoBreda electric train and freight cars.
“Interpipe has been cooperating with ONCF for about 15 years. During this time, the Company has managed to establish itself as a reliable supplier of wheels. Morocco is expanding its rolling stock fleet as part of the construction of a high-speed electric train line, so Interpipe hopes to further develop partnerships with Moroccan railways. In general, the African continent is a promising market for the development of railroad products. We are already cooperating with Mauritania, Gabon, Egypt and intend to expand our presence in other countries of the region,” said Oleksandr Garkavyi, director of Interpipe’s railway products division.
