AO «Altaivagon» is one of the largest and most advanced enterprises in the field of railcar construction in the Russian Federation. The plant specializes in the production of various types of freight cars. Parent enterprise AO «Altaivagon» in Novoaltaysk produces more than 20 modern models of railway freight rolling stock with improved characteristics. Production lines of the enterprise and the use of high-tech equipment allows us to manufacture up to 4 types of cars simultaneously. The design of cars manufactured by «Altaivagon» was developed taking into account best practices in the field of domestic and foreign engineering ensuring high reliability and economic efficiency of products. Due to a number of optimally selected technical characteristics, several car models are in special demand in the market.
Covered car model 11-2135-01 for transportation of unit cargo, packaged and some other types of cargo requiring protection from atmospheric precipitation. Its time-tested design was marked by victory at the Russian Railways industry competition.
The market leader among gondola cars is model 12-2153, a gondola car used for transportation of cargoes that do not require shelter from precipitation, including bulk dust-free, loose and other cargoes. The main competitive advantages of this car are its enhanced strength characteristics and increased body volume compared to the gondola car model 12-29601. This gondola car is fully compatible with the existing infrastructure and can be operated on all types of loading and unloading terminals. The use of enhanced strength steels for the manufacture of the main load-bearing body parts has a positive effect on the operational reliability of a car of this type.
The platform of model 13-2114-07 is intended for the transportation of round timber and lumber. The use of a bolted connection for fastening the uprights and the end wall on the car frame enables quickly dismantling them during car repair. The lattice design of the end wall enables customs control of the cargo. The combination of all these advantages provides high demand for this model.
In addition, customers are particularly interested in the platform model 13-2114K designed for the transportation of large containers with a gross weight of up to 36 tons. The ability to transport containers with a large carrying capacity, including tank containers with dangerous cargoes, makes this model as versatile as possible in its segment.
