Bakytzhan Sagintayev examined technological features of Aktobe rail and beam plant

During the visit to the site, B.Sagintayeva was informed about the features of production and demonstrated samples of the finished products. It should be noted that the plant uses new “Siemens VIA Metals Technologies”, which allows using the produced rails on high-speed lines and lines with increased freight intensity.

The plant’s products are used in the construction of the second railway lines Almaty-1-Shu, as well as on the access roads to the under construction projects of the ferry complex at Kuryk port and Astana railway station complex. In general, it is planned to supply more than 600 thousand tons of rails until 2022 to modernize the backbone railway network of the Republic of Kazakhstan within the framework of a long-term contract for the purchase of rails between “NC” KTZ” JSCand “ARBZ” LLP.

In addition to saturating the domestic market, Aktobe manufacturers send rail products for export to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Belarus, Georgia, Turkmenistan, the Russian Federation, Estonia.

According to the instruction, indicated by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan N.Nazarbayev in his Message “The Third Modernization of Kazakhstan: Global Competitiveness”, further industrialization in the country will be continued with an emphasis on the development of competitive manufactures with high export potential, such as Aktobe rail and beam plant.
