On November 23, the Kryukov Carriage Works (KVSZ) sent to Belarus 50 cars for the transportation of mineral fertilizers from the final contract batch for the open joint stock company Belaruskali. Of all the twin cars, one was distinguished, on which the employees of KVSZ put down a symbolic inscription "1500 car".
“With this company, which today is one of the largest producers and exporters of potash fertilizers in the world, our company has been cooperating for 15 years. Belaruskali is a dynamic company that is rapidly developing, increasing the production of mineral fertilizers. For the transportation of its products, the enterprise needs reliable and powerful equipment, so it makes sure that its transport fleet meets its own needs and requirements of the time, carefully studies the proposals of railway car manufacturers for its regular replenishment and renewal, "the press service of the Ukrainian enterprises.
In 2005, Kryukovsky Carriage Building already had experience in the manufacture of modern mineral locomotives, therefore it was one of the candidates for the supply of this railway equipment. Then the company sold 550 cars of this model to various customers.
In the second half of 2005, KVSZ signed a contract with Belaruskali. The customer then chose an improved model - 19-7017-01. And during 2005-2009 KVSZ supplied 610 of these cars to Belarus.
After a long break in 2018, the enterprises resumed cooperation, and the Belarusian customer signed an agreement with KVSZ for the supply of 1000 cars for the transportation of mineral fertilizers of a new development of car builders - model 19-7017-05.
“I would like to hope that the cooperation of JSC“ KVSZ ”with the well-known Belarusian company will have no less meaningful continuation. At least its representatives are already interested in whether our plant is planning to produce mineral wagons with increased axle load and carrying capacity. There is no doubt that the engineers of the Kryukovsky Carriage Building will fulfill any customer's request. There would be orders, but the production potential and the desire to work at the plant will be enough, ”the KVSZ stressed.
