The turnouts and signals of the park are equipped with microprocessor centralization and are controlled from a single post. All of them are equipped with electric heating for uninterrupted operation during negative temperatures. A unique feature is the introduction of a new technology that automatically recognizes the plates of all types of freight cars at speeds up to 60 km /h. Thanks to the Novy Park, an additional 100 skilled jobs will be created in the state of Vostochny Port JSC.
The Novy Park commissioning marks the completion of the modernization of the “last mile” of the Trans-Siberian Railway - the port station Nakhodka-Vostochnaya - one of the most important nodes of the railway infrastructure of the Russian Far East. In the course of modernization in 2019, Vostochny Port JSC built the B railway park at the station. Five electrified railway tracks with a total length of 7.3 km were donated to the balance sheet of Russian Railways for general use by all companies in the industrial cluster of the Wrangel Bay. The total investment in the construction of parks amounted to 5 billion rubles.
The project for the construction of railway parks was implemented by a private investor Vostochny Port JSC on the principles of public-private partnership with Russian Railways within the framework of the target areas of the Russian Transport Strategy under the auspices of Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation.
