Russian railway workers propose to return Interpipe to the Russian market
A number of Russian railway operators are proposing to return Interpipe’s access to the Russian railway wheel market in order to solve the problem of rising prices for solid-rolled wheels.
According to him, by the end of the year, a surplus of railway wheels is expected in the Russian Federation.
However, now, due to the fact that operators have begun to massively withdraw wagons from repairs against the backdrop of growing demand for freight transportation, a deficit is formed.
Railway wheels in Russia are produced only by the Vyksa Steel Works and the Evraz company.
In the near future, they will be stopped for preventive maintenance, so the deficit will increase even more. In recent years, Interpipe has supplied wheels to the Russian market under protective duties of 34.22%.
In December 2020, imports came under a complete ban.
