During his working trip to Tver, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin visited KSC Industrial Technopark and acquainted himself with the projects of KSC enterprises on localizing production of high-tech components for transport machine building.
In particular, a set of electrical equipment installed on new EMU EG2Tv “Ivolga-3.0” was presented to the Russian Prime Minister. The set of electrical equipment developed and manufactured by KSC enterprises replaced similar imported products, including the ABB traction converter that was installed on the previous EMU model.
Mikhail Mishustin also inspected the promising state-of-the-art traction converter TPL-2-1100-1AS with the rated output power of 2x1,100 kW. It is designed for new generation electric freight locomotives 2ES5S, 3ES5S equipped with asynchronous traction motors. Compared to the collector drive, the drive based on asynchronous traction motors shows higher traction energy performance and efficiency and involves lower life cycle cost. The inverter designed and manufactured at KSC is equipped with state-of-the-art software, as well as an integrated auxiliary inverter. In terms of its characteristics, it is not inferior to the best European analogs.
With regard to localizing the key elements of climate control systems for transport, the Prime Minister acquainted himself with the samples of tubular lamella heat exchangers, the production of which was launched by Climate Control Equipment Division of KSC Group of Companies in 2021. Currently the division is also working on localizing Russia's first freon scroll compressors with an integrated electric motor. Serial production is scheduled for 2022.
During his visit to KSC Industrial Technopark, Mikhail Mishustin was shown the latest technologies and developments from other divisions of the group, including interior and exterior elements of urban and suburban rail transport, lighting and cord products, as well as information systems that feature among the most advanced ones in the world due to displays with different functionality.
Taras Spivak, General Director of KSC Group of Companies:
- One of the crucial conditions fostering development of transport engineering components production is localization of the component base, which makes us independent of foreign suppliers. At KSC Industrial Technopark, we are creating a large-scale center of competence producing a wide range of systems and components that define modern transport. I am confident that further development of projects in the field of deep localization of components production, taking into account the existing and pending state support measures, will not only enable us to significantly upgrade the rolling stock of railway and rail transport, but will also create favorable conditions for tapping into new markets and developing new lines of business.
Key Systems and Components (KSC) Group of Companies was established in November 2017. It unites more than 30 Russian enterprises engaged in producing equipment and components for the transport engineering industry. KSC production facilities are located in eight regions of Russia and employ more than 7,500 people. Its annual sales exceed 60 billion rubles. KSC Group of Companies is a member of the Union of Machine Builders of Russia.
We really appreciate your opinion and are grateful for your help in the development of the Society!
