Russia-based Sinara Group Has Partnered With Indian Company To Assemble RTM-32 Machine Sets


Signalling what could herald Indo-Russian cooperation in the railways sector, Russia’s Sinara Transport Machines (STM) has recently launched work to assemble RTM-32 machine sets at the production site of San Engineering & Locomotives in India. Technical experts of Sinara Transport Machines Holding (STM, part of the Sinara Group) recently started working on the project.

STM staff-members will also guide and supervise the start-up and adjustment works after the equipment is manufactured. SKD is being implemented within the framework of the governmental program “Make in India”, which assumes a degree of localization of at least 51%, according to a statement by STM, part of the Sinara Group .

Russian Railways is one of the biggest railway companies in the world and the total length used by it is one of the largest in the world. The Trans–Siberian Railway is a network of railways connecting Western Russia to the Russian Far East. It is the longest railway line in the world with a length of over 9,289 kilometres (5,772 miles), starting from Moscow and ending at Vladivostok, on the Pacific Ocean. The Trans-Siberian Railway has directly connected Moscow with Vladivostok since 1916.

The Indian railway sector is one of the key export destinations for STM Holding, according to Anton Zubikhin, Deputy General Director for Sales and General Director of STM Trading House. “At the moment, our company is supplying equipment to its Indian partners worth 20 million euros. Moreover, I would like to note that signing of these contracts was a result of tough competition with the world leaders in the railway equipment manufacturing sphere, including producers from Austria and the United States. We are by no means going to slow down. On the contrary, it is our plan to take part in the next tenders for the supply of various equipment for a total amount of more than 200 million euros,” he informed.

One machine set includes two fully assembled trolleys (undercarriage), hydraulic transmission with the necessary attached implements, hydraulic motors with pumping station, air compressor and generator, remote control and digital control system, diagnostic and control systems for servo valves, tamping, lifting and straightening devices, according to the STM statement.

In addition, STM experts also developed all design documentation and adapted it to the requirements of the customer – the Indian Railways (IR).

Two lots of machine sets were delivered in India in early 2021. Two ready-made WSTs will be handed over to India Railways for pilot operation before the end of this year, reported ET.

STM also supplied 19 machine sets to India for the subsequent production of ballast regulating and levelling machines (BRM). This project is being implemented within the framework of the governmental program “Make in India”. The machines produced by STM that operate on the tracks in India include track renewal machines (WST), laying cranes and dynamic track stabilizers. Their comprehensive servicing is also provided by STM, according to the STM statement.
