Turkmenistan purchased additional 5 diesel locomotives for mainline freight trains. They were manufactured by Transmashholding JSC, located in Bryansk of the Russian Federation.
The new traction machines are fully functional in various extreme weather conditions and on difficult track sections. The locomotives have become part of the Turkmen Railways fleet, which will carry not only freight but also passenger traffic.
The contract for the supply of new locomotives was signed back in late 2020. The first diesel locomotives for passenger and freight trains under this contract were delivered to Turkmenistan in October 2021.
