The first batch of 15-150-04 tank railcars for the transportation of light oil products is being assembled and painted on the areas of the car-assembly production. The tank is installed on a 18-100 bogie for 1520 mm track gauge. Service life – 32 years. These tanks are used not only for the transportation of oil products, but also for their storage. The name of the ordering company was not disclosed.

It is also noted that at the end of 2020 – beginning of 2021, more than 1000 units for petroleum products and 100 for the transportation of vegetable oils were already sent. These contracts reduce the shortage of specialized tank wagons that was previously noted on the market. For several years there were no large orders for this type of rolling stock at the enterprise. The first contracts appeared in 2019.

At present, the workshop for the assembly of tanks has been transferred to a round-the-clock operation.
