On June 4, 2021, within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF-2021), the Sinara Group and Siemens concern signed a memorandum on the development of the service direction for rolling stock. In the presence of the President of the Sinara Group, Dmitry Pumpyanskiy, and the President, Chairman of the Management Board of Siemens AG, Roland Busch, the document was signed by the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Sinara Group Alexander Pumpyanskiy, Head of Customer Service Support at Siemens Mobility Johannes Emmelheinz and Commercial Director of Siemens Mobility Karl Blaim.

The document provides for the creation of a joint venture, the main area of ​​activity of which will be the implementation of a full range of services for the maintenance of the products of the Ural Locomotives plant - freight locomotives, high-speed, and, in the future, high-speed electric trains. The parties also plan to make extensive use of the capabilities of the previously created service divisions of both companies.

“The logic of the development of railway transport today implies a transition from the sale of goods to the creation of an integrated service: efficient use of rolling stock throughout the entire life cycle of a product through prompt maintenance, timely service, and predictive analytics. The partnership between Siemens and the Sinara Group, which has already served the development of the most modern technologies in the field of rolling stock in Russia, can create such a comprehensive service. By combining the competencies of engineers and service specialists of the two companies, we will provide our customers with the highest availability and uninterrupted operation of all equipment manufactured at Ural Locomotives,” emphasized Alexander Pumpyansky.

“Railway traffic - both freight and passenger - is becoming more and more intensive and on the Russian railways the need for additional units of rolling stock, as well as for services, is increasing. That`s why Siemens Mobility plans to increase its local service capacity. As a partner in a service joint venture, the company makes a significant contribution to ensuring the availability and efficiency of rolling stock, as well as guarantees sustainable performance throughout its life cycle,” says Alexander Liberov, President of Siemens Russia.

As a reminder, on October 20, 2020, an agreement was signed at the Ural Lokomotives plant providing for the organization of the first production of high-speed trains in Russia based on the Uralskiye Lokomotivy plant. Investments in the project will amount to 10 billion rubles.
