Ukrainian industrial company Interpipe has announced that it has successfully passed the audit of the German corporation Siemens. Production for the first orders is planned to begin this year. For Ukrainian manufacturers, this is an important step towards full qualification as a supplier. Meeting all audit requirements means that Interpipe will be able to directly supply wheelsets for the production and maintenance of a wide range of Siemens railway vehicles worldwide: high-speed passenger trains, electric trains, subway cars, and locomotives.

The audit consisted of several steps. The German company studied in detail the entire production of technology, from the manufacture of a round billet at the electric steel-making complex "Intepipe Steel" and ending with the machining of the railway wheels themselves. Siemens representatives paid special attention to Interpipe's plans to decarbonize production.

’’ We have proven that we meet all the strictest requirements for Siemens' internal standards. This is an important step towards the strategic goal of the volcano - to become a certified supplier for the production of locomotives and passenger rail vehicles for one of the largest manufacturers. Interpipe will start working on the first direct orders for Siemens later this year ‘, said Alexander Garkavij, Director of Interpipe Railway Products Division.
