In September, Mordovcement, a subsidiary of the Eurocement Group, launched an investment programme for the reconstruction of local railway infrastructure.
The investment provides funding for the complete replacement of 9.1 km of track and 42 switches. The planned repairs will ensure the continued safe use of the railway infrastructure for the supply of raw materials for production.
The works on the restoration of the railway infrastructure have attracted companies such as Ulyanovsktransstroy, one of the largest specialised construction companies in the Volga region. The company has many years of experience in servicing and repairing railways.
The implementation of the project, which will cost RUB220 million, will increase the turnover of wagons for the loading of cement, and will help to establish a stable trouble-free delivery of cars of raw materials from the quarry to the production area. It is also hoped that the development will increase the reliability of the railway track as a whole and extend its lifecycle, reducing the complexity and cost of maintenance, and obtaining economic benefits during its operation.
