Sinara transportation machines is a Russian transportation vehicle manufacturing and engineering company based in Ekaterinburg. The company was established in 2007 as a division of the Sinara Group.
The division incorporates the subsidiaries ОАО "Уральский завод железнодорожного машиностроения" (Ural railway engineering plant), ОАО "Людиновский тепловозостроительный завод" (Lyudinovsky Locomotive Plant), ООО "Уральский дизель-моторный завод" (Ural diesel engine plant) and ООО "Центр инновационного развития СТМ" (CTM research and development centre).
A joint venture with Siemens was created in 2010: ООО "Уральские локомотивы" (Ural Locomotives); manufacturing facilities were based at the Ural railway engineering plant.
Ural railway engineering plant
The Ural railway engineering plant (Уральский завод железнодорожного машиностроения УЗЖМ) was formed from the former "Welded engineering structures factory" (Завод сварных машиностроительных конструкций ЗСМК) in Verkhnyaya Pyshma (part of the Uralmash industrial complex based in Ekaterinburg). It was incorporated into the Sinara Group in 2004. In October 2004 the plant began collaboration with RZD with the aim of production of electric freight locomotives.
The plant was formed to locate a DC electric freight locomotive production site within Russian territory; formerly, during the Soviet era DC electric locomotive production in the USSR had been located in Tbilsi in Georgia.
Initially the plant was involved in the upgrading of electric locomotives of type VL11 (ВЛ11), by 2006 the plant had produced the first unit of electric locomotive 2ES6 (2ЭС6), which was certified for use by 2008. By 2009 production capacity for up to 60 twin-unit locomotives per year had been installed.
In 2010 a joint venture with Siemens (49% Siemens holding) named ООО "Уральские локомотивы" (Ural Locomotives) was formed to produce electric freight locomotives utilising asynchronous traction. The Sinara Group production facilities in Russia were to be based at the factory in Verkhnyaya Pyshma. The joint venture included a technology transfer agreement, with electrical traction components manufactured at Siemens' St. Petersburg plant "Сименс Электропривод". The locomotive produced as a result of the venture were the 2ES10 (2ЭС10) type. The first 2ES10 unit was produced in early 2011.
2ES10 "Granit" (2010-current)- one of the most powerful in Europe, Russia and eight-axle articulated trucks DC electric locomotives with asynchronous traction drive. Design developed by the Department of Research and Development, LLC "Ural Locomotives" and the group Siemens.
Lyudinovsky Locomotive Plant
- See also Людиновский тепловозостроительный завод (Russian language)
The locomotive plant in Lyudinovsky was founded in 1745. In 2007 the works became part of the Sinara transport machines as Lyudinovsky Locomotive Plant (ОАО Людиновский тепловозостроительный завод ЛТЗ). As of 2010 it produces shunting locomotives with both hydraulic transmission: TGM3B (ТГМ4Б) and TGM6A (ТГМ6Д), and electrical transmission: TEM7A (ТЭМ7А) and TEM9 (ТЭМ9).
TEM7 (1976-current) -shunting locomotive with electric transmission changeable, DC, with the axial formula +20-20 20 20. The most powerful locomotive shunter, operates on the railways post-Soviet countries
TEM9 (2009-current)- a four-axle export -shunting locomotive with electric transmission changeable, DC and individual drive wheel sets, intended for shunting and export work on the railways of 1520 mm of JSC "Russian Railways" and the industrial enterprises of ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy, chemical industry, power industry, businesses industrial railway transportation, construction and other industries.
Ural diesel engine plant
- See also Уральский дизель-моторный завод (Russian language)
The Ural Turbine factory (Уральский турбинный завод) was formed in 1941 as part of a large scale movement of industrial capacity from western Russia during the Second World War. The engine manufacturing facilities of the Kirov Plant in Leningrad and the Kharkov diesel factory 75 (Харьковский дизельный завод №75) were transported to the Ural region of Russia (Sverdlovsk).
The factory was in production by August 1941, and produced M-40 aero engines and V-2 engines for tanks. By 1942 production was over 20 engines per day, and in 1942 received an Order of Lenin and in 1943 an Order of the Red Banner of Labour for its contributions. By August 1945 the plant had produced 25,000 engines.
After the end of WWII production of diesel engines continued, with the plant producing engines for oil drilling, excavators, locomotives and mobile generators. Exports of engines began in 1956. After 1962 all engines produced were turbocharged. After 1979 the factory became a key supplier of diesel engines for Belarussian dump truck manufacturer BelAZ.
In 2003 the company became and open joint stock company as ОАО "Турбомоторный завод", in 2008 it was acquired by the Sinara Group and became the limited liability company Ural diesel engine plant ( ООО Уральский дизель-моторный завод УДМЗ ).
STM research centre
The STM research centre (ООО Центр инновационного развития CТМ) was created in 2010 to develop new railway locomotives and technologies.
