Five locomotives have joined the TEG Heavy Projects railway fleet

Five new TEM-9 and TEM-14 shunting locomotives have joined the rolling stock of TEG Heavy Projects (part of the SEG Enera Group of Companies). These locomotives will transport raw materials for fertilizer production at the chemical complex in Samarkand.

The TEM-9 and TEM-14 locomotives are of the new generation, featuring powerful engines with capacities of 1,200 and 2,400 horsepower respectively. These locomotives are capable of reaching speed of up to 100 km/h and operating seamlessly in the local climate, even at temperatures of up to +60°C. Equipped with a microprocessor for control, management, and diagnostics, these locomotives can be operated by a single engineer without the need for an assistant.

The new locomotives will transport phosphorus concentrate from the Neofos enrichment plant in the Navoi region to the fertilizer production plant in Samarkand, known as Samarqandkimyo (part of the SEG Enera Group of Companies). Production is scheduled to commence in 2024.

"TEG Heavy Projects is expanding its own rolling stock capabilities and creating optimal logistics conditions for its partners. The chemical complex in Samarkand will require the delivery of up to 1.3 million tons of raw materials per year. With the addition of these five new locomotives and the existing fleet of wagons, we will fully meet this demand and ensure uninterrupted operation for the new production facility," said Sultanbek Kayumov, the CEO of TEG Heavy Projects.
