“We launch three dozens of new locomotives made by General Electric in 2019. They will work at the rail routes in the east and south of the country. The further modernization of the railway and construction of the modern road corridors are ahead,” Groysman reported.
Earlier Ukrzaliznytsia received eight new locomotives produced by General Electric enterprise. Last year, the transport capacity of the company on this particular route was only 12-14 trains; now that Ukraine got the new locomotives, Ukrzaliznytsia will be able to use up to 24 trains on this route.
They all will be used in the strategic cargo route between Komysh-Zorya and Volnovakha, in the Ukraine-controlled section of Donetsk region. Besides, the Ukrainian company plans to send the locomotives to Mykolaiv port, using them for the export of the Ukrainian grain.
