Ukrainian industrial company INTERPIPE has signed a long-term contract for the supply of self-assembled freight wheelsets for INVEHO UFO, one of the largest car-building and car-repair companies in France.
The contract provides for the production in Ukraine and the supply of 1,530 wheelsets of the ULT-25 design to a French client until September 2022.
INVEHO UFO will use these bells for the construction of new freight cars.
Wheelsets ULT-25 were developed by INTERPIPE engineers for European gauge and are in demand not only among customers in France, but also in Germany and other European countries.
Alexander Garkavy, director of the railway products division, Interpipe:
– The French company INVEHO UFO is our regular customer, Interpipe has already shipped large orders to him twice. The ULT-25 wheelset is one of the most popular designs on the European freight train market, reaching speeds of up to 120 km /h. The low-stress design of the wheel disc allows increasing its wear resistance and extending the product life cycle. We hope not only to maintain, but also to expand our cooperation with INVEHO UFO with other types of products.
