Uralvagonzavod left without orders for 2021

Uralvagonzavod has not received orders for the production of railcars for 2021. None of its three largest customers - SUEK, Federal Freight Company (a subsidiary of Russian Railways), and Freight One - have signed contracts with the company. Russian Railways themselves chose other suppliers.

About it reports RBC with reference to several sources, the information is confirmed by the government procurement website.

UVZ representatives have to ask for the purchase of at least a few cars, - said RBC one of the sources.

In 2020, Uralvagonzavod signed 32 contracts for 649 million rubles (in 2019 - 77 for 1.4 billion rubles), and all 32 contracts end in 2020. Analysts interviewed by the publication reported a new surplus of wagons and attributed this primarily to decreasing government subsidies to the industry, as well as to a drop in demand for coal - this is the main driver of transportation.

In addition to wagons, Uralvagonzavod is engaged in the development and production of military equipment and road-building machines. The corporation includes research institutes, design bureaus and manufacturing enterprises.
