Lyudinovsky Diesel Locomotive Plant (LTZ), part of STM Holding, oversees the production of the diesel locomotives. Sinara Transport Machines (STM) and Gazpromtrans signed a contract for the supply of two diesel locomotives of the TEM9 and TEM14 series expected to be delivered by the end of this year.

The TEM9 locomotive was already delivered to the customer on October 26 while, according to the second contract provisions.

The operating firm will provide the TEM14 shunting locomotives in November 2021.

In 2021, Gazpromtrans has already requested a powerful two-diesel TEM14 shunting locomotive. The two companies consider the transition to comprehensive long-term contracts for the supply of trains, spare parts, and after-sales assistance. Currently, Gazpromtrans already has several machines produced by STM in their locomotive fleet. The fleet includes 38 units of TEM7 and TEM7A diesel locomotives and 10 vehicles of TEM9 diesel locomotives.

TEM14, a two-diesel single-section locomotive with the range of 1 764 kW (2 400 h.p.), is used for heavy shunting work on railways and at industrial projects. Due to the two-diesel concept, the locomotive has the maximum power for this class of diesel locomotives. The smart control system of the two-diesel installation allows one to use only one engine at low traction load and automatically start the second diesel engine when the additional loads are added.

TEM9 is an 882 kW (1 200 h.p.) diesel locomotive with electric transmission and independent wheelset drive, designed for shunting operations on the 1520 mm gauge rail network. Its competing leverage is the minimum turning range (50 meters).

“We continue to develop and extend our strategic cooperation with the leader of the oil and gas industry. Our machines help the enterprises of Gazpromtrans to reach their production aims in various regions of the country,” Anton Zubikhin, CEO of STM Trading House, said.
