UNITE SUPPORTS THE MIU INITIATIVE TO LIMIT THE SERVICE LIFE OF WAGONS

The association supports the idea of renewing non-self-propelled rolling stock and the model of such renewal stated in the draft Order of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine “On Approval of the Procedure of Complex of Diagnostic, Repair and Registration Operations Aimed at Extension of the Operating Life of Freight Railcars (Except for Freight Railcars of Technological Railway Transport Enterprises Designed for Moving for Production Purposes within the Territory of Such Enterprises)”.

The draft order does not propose any shock solutions; it provides for a gradual “cascading” decommissioning of obsolete wagons. Thus, business is given an opportunity to adapt to new requirements. At the same time, the domestic railcar industry has more than enough capacity to replace decommissioned rolling stock and meet the demand for freight transportation. And to support private owners in the purchase of new wagons, the government is considering launching a state leasing programme with the state guaranteeing the financial risks of the manufacturer and the business.

In support of this draft order, the Association sent a letter to the State Regulatory Service of Ukraine.
