Monday, February 25, 2019
Faced with Russia’s ban on sale of locomotive engines to Ukraine, ArcelorMittal Kryviy Rih is solving the problem by pulling out old Russian engines and replacing them with new American-made Cummins diesel engines, reports the Center for Transportation Technologies. Arcelor, Ukraine’s largest integrated steel company, is upgrading five locomotives this way, buying the endings from Comtek, the representative of Cummins in Ukraine. Arcelor, which has 125 locomotives, plans to open a tender soon to repair five more.
