Vitaly Votolevsky, STM’s Deputy General Director, has been appointed Director of the new division.

Services will begin for customers including Russian Railways next year. These will be provided using equipment produced by the Sinara Group. When this is not possible, the division will lease equipment elsewhere.

Currently, Sinara is considering developing and producing its own high-performance track machines and is also looking into the possibility of collaborating with overseas track equipment manufacturers.

It is further considering partnerships with organisations including the Research Institute of Railway Transport (VNIIZhT), the Russian University of Transport (MIIT) and the Research and Design Institute for Information Technology, Signalling and Telecommunications in Railway Transportation (NIIAS).
