Construction work is underway at the North Wagon Depot
Construction work is underway at the North Wagon Depot. There is a wagon assembly, trailer and auto brake parts repair, wheel pair and other workshops at the depot.
Depending on wagon movement intensity, the rolling surface of the wheel pairs is worn out and needs to be redesigned every 7-10 years. The newly built wagon wheel workshop will meet this demand. Inventory and wheelsets of private parking wagons of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC will be assembled here. Dismantled devices and equipment from the Baku Wagon Repair Plant were used in the construction of the workshop. It has a width of 28 meters, a length of 44 meters and a total area of 1250 m2. It will be possible to assemble here 500 wagon wheel pairs every month. Dismantling ,washing of wheel pairs and other works are also carried out in the workshop.
Chairman of Azerbaijan Railways Javid Gurbanov inspected the depot and got acquainted with the progress of construction work.
It should be noted that a specialized wagon depot for the repair of tank wagons at Bilajari station was commissioned in 1934. At the beginning of the last century, due to the increase in oil production around Baku, transportation and repair of freight wagons were organized at the depot.
