First for Acron in Russia

First for Acron in Russia

(Posted on 14/09/20)

Acron Group, a leading mineral fertiliser producer in Russia and worldwide, is the first company in Russia to use innovative 19-6978-01 hopper cars manufactured by United Wagon Company to ship its products.

The six-axle hopper car, a unique model that efficiently combines articulated structure and hopper boxes located in the lower end parts of the car body, is unrivalled in the world car-building industry. Using 25 tf axle load bogies ensures high performance parameters. The articulated cars have an increased lift capacity of 113.5 tonnes, over 50% more than the cars currently used by the Group. The car body volume is 160 m³. The mineral hopper is equipped with eight hatches for even packing of the car space.

Acron Vice President for Transport and Logistics Igor Bogdan noted that the Group implements the most advanced technology, both in mineral fertiliser production and in logistics. ‘The new hopper is more efficient in terms of production and cost of operation. By using this model, the Group will cut the cost of mineral fertiliser delivery by rail’.

Acron is leasing the hopper cars from Logistics 1520, the Group’s long-term partner in mineral fertiliser transportation by rail.

In 2019, Acron Group transported 8 million tonnes of raw materials and finished products by rail, using its own fleet of 1,700 cars and tanks and over 2,500 leased cars.
