UWC Delivers Tank Car Order to Transport Logistics Systems

United Wagon Company has delivered tank cars for transporting technical-grade sulphuric acid to Siberian rail operator Transport Logistics Systems.

This is UWC’s first supply agreement with TLS. It is also the first time TLS has acquired such specialised new-generation tank cars.

15-9545 Tank Car

The 15-9545 tank cars come with bogies that have a 25t axle load. They have a total loading capacity of 77t and a tank volume of 44 cubic metres. UWC estimates that each tank car can hold almost 12 percent more cargo compared to standard models. The 18-9855 bogies also reduce the cars’ maintenance intervals. For these tank cars they are up to one million kilometres travelled (eight years), whereas standard models will require their first repairs after 210,000km. The overall service life of the UWC tank cars is 18 years.
