The Implementation Program under the Agreement of Cooperation in the NGV sector was signed today at the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi.

The document was signed by Vitaly Markelov, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, Sergey Kobzev, Deputy Chief Executive Officer – Chief Engineer of Russian Railways, Sergey Papin, President of Sinara-Transport Machines (part of Sinara Group), and Alexander Yermonsky, Deputy CEO for Technical Development of Transmashholding.

In accordance with the Program, Russian Railways plans to increase the fleet of mainline gas turbine locomotives and gas turbine shunters powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) from 3 to 22 units by 2023. The locomotives will operate on the Sverdlovsk Railway.

For refueling purposes, Gazprom intends to build two small-scale LNG production facilities at the gas distribution stations in Tobolsk and Surgut, as well as platforms for mobile refuellers at the Voynovka and Surgut stations.

Pursuant to the Program, manufacturers (Sinara Group and Transmashholding) will take measures to improve the designs of gas-powered locomotives. In addition, new series of gas-powered vehicles will be developed.
