The order portfolio of private railcar factories for 2022 is twice the volume of production in 2021.

Wagon builders of Ukraine

Alexander Kamyshin, the head of Ukrzaliznytsia, wrote about this in his Telegram channel, informs Railway Supply magazine.

“I talked with the leaders of the largest private wagon-building plants. The good news is that all private factories are already busy with work for the first half of the year. And some – until October. The bad news is that everything is getting more expensive: gas, electricity, metal, casting. And there  are difficulties with people, ” wrote the chairman of the board of UZ.

He also stressed that previous years were difficult for domestic wagon builders: “2021 was the second worst in the last 10 years.”

Note that the worst indicator was in 2015 – 998 manufactured wagons.

At the same time, as Alexander Kamyshin said, in 2021, wagon-building enterprises manufactured 1.9 thousand wagons. Only 11 were built by enterprises that are part of the UZ.

As it was informed earlier, for 10 years the volumes of wagon building were reduced by 25 times.
