Zaporizhzhya Iron and Steel Works “Zaporozhstal” removes additional locomotives from stand-by storage after a partial resumption of the enterprise.

Locomotives stand-by storage

This is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply, citing the CFTS.

According to the company, after the restoration of part of the production capacity of Zaporizhstal, there was a need for additional locomotives to transport raw materials, and subsequently finished products.

At the same time, it is specified that at the time of the conservation of the enterprise, the number of diesel locomotives in operation was reduced from the usual 70 to three.

At present, railway specialists are working on the reactivation of additional rolling stock units, so 41 locomotives have already been returned to work.

It is also reported that Ukrzaliznytsia is ready to support Zaporizhstal in solving logistical problems that have arisen at Ukrainian industrial enterprises due to the war. UZ, in particular, will help metallurgists find alternative ways to supply raw materials and ship finished products.
