Target indicators for import substitution of components in railway engineering have been approved in Russia

The corresponding action plan has been published by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia. The development of new components is expected, reports Railway Supply magazine referring to tzdjournal.

So for metro trains, the production of automatic couplings (the market share today is 0%, the target is 2024 – 20%, the annual demand is assumed to be 520 units or 490 million rubles) and compressor units (market share is 0% , target indicator – 30%, annual demand – 390 units or 840 million rubles) should be mastered.

Ukraine imported 8.5 thousand tons of rails from Russia in 2020

In turn, joint units for freight cars should begin to be produced (market share – 0%, target – 50%, annual demand – 600 units or 129 million rubles).

Also, for components for electric trains, an increase in the share of Russian automatic couplings (from the current 40% to 50% by 2024, the annual demand is 600 units or 980 million rubles) and compressor units (from 45% to 55%, the annual demand is 270 units or 510 million rubles) is expected.
