The number of wagons being repaired at the “Sharg” Wagon Depot has increased
“Sharg” wagon depot located in Alat settlement of Garadagh district and operating as part of ADY Express LLC, completed 2020 year with an increased number of wagons being repaired. The depot carries out current and depot repairs of freight cars to ensure uninterrupted transportation of goods by rail in Azerbaijan.
In 2020, ADY Express organized the work of the “Sharg” wagon depot within the framework of a special quarantine regime applied in the country in response to the coronavirus pandemic, created a shift mode, and the repair process of wagons continued without interruption. In all workshops operating at the depot, the work was carried out in the same way. As a result, conditions have been created for the timely completion of repair work on freight wagons and their use in the transportation of goods.
The total number of wagons repaired in the depot in 2020 was 1,091, which is 70% more than in 2019. The highest figure was recorded in November last year – 147 cars. Among the freight cars repaired last year, there were 229 tank cars, 204 semi-cars, 219 covered wagons, 218 refrigerators, 219 platforms and 2 grain wagons.
It should be noted that the depot is currently undergoing phased repairs. Reconstruction of the depot and its provision with modern engineering and technological equipment will make it possible to repair all types of freight cars that are part of the car fleet of Azerbaijan. The depot reconstruction concept has been developed taking into account the maximum maintenance of existing buildings and facilities, provided that the production process is not stopped. So, in parallel with the reconstruction work at the “Sharg” wagon depot, a technological process is underway – the repair of wagons are carried out.
