Company will complete mechanical drives for locomotives, engines, gearboxes and wheelsets for machines that will run on lines in Central Asian Kazakhstan in mid-2021.

Škoda Electric will begin, under a contract for engineering company GE Wabtec, the delivery of a new series of complete mechanical drives for locomotives, engines, gearboxes and wheelsets for machines that will run on lines in Central Asian Kazakhstan in mid-2021. The company said that the nature of the climate and the terrain of the local lines sometimes causes temperature fluctuations, where the locomotive must cope with a temperature difference of 20 degrees Celsius in a short time. The company now has parts for nine locomotives in production. The company also regards the contract as an important reference.
