RZD International Services Are Sought After by European Customers
RZD International has received a certificate confirming the fulfillment of its obligations to cooperate with the Austrian company STRABAG in Serbia.

The experts of RZD International executed track adjusting over the 5 km long Smederevo-Mala Krsna railway section, as had been agreed with BIG-ING company, a subcontractor of STRABAG. The works were under way from July to September 2018, accomplished in three stages in accordance with the technology, with the use of the track machine Plasser Theurer Duomatic and completed before the deadline.

This was the second time for the Russian company to be involved in the works on infrastructure projects of the European contractors. Previously, the company had performed the works on the embankment and permanent way construction on the Jejelev Bridge over the Danube river, under the contract with the Spanish construction group AZVI.

First deputy director of RZD International branch office in the Republic of Serbia Mansurbek Sultanov:  "We watch the growing demand from the foreign contractors for the services of RZD International.  Professionalism of our specialists, availability of the special machinery and experience in implementation of the European projects allow the company to fully and effectively accomplish a wide range of railway infrastructure construction and reconstruction works both in Europe and around the world".

Background:

Track adjusting is one of the basic works of the railway track maintenance, directly associated with the flow and safety of the trains movement.

RZD International has been carrying out modernization and construction of the Serbian railways since 2014. The Company has already completed reconstruction of the Belgrade – Pancevo and Resnik – Valjevo sections within the framework of the Pan-European Transport Corridor X development project and carried out construction of railway tracks on the Jejelev bridge. Also, 27 Russian-made Diesel Multiple Unit trains (DMU) were delivered to Serbia. 

Now RZD International is constructing unique to Serbia facilities – the viaduct in the floodplain of the Danube river and the Chortanovci tunnel, – and reconstructing the Stara Pazova – Novi Sad section for the train speed of 200 km/h.

Along with that, in January 2019, RZD International LLC and JSC Serbian Railways Infrastructure signed a contract, which includes the Integrated Traffic Control Center creation in the Republic of Serbia. The Document also stipulates construction works and procurement of materials in terms of the second stage of reconstruction, modernization and construction of the double-track railway for the speed of 200 km/h of the 40,44 km long Stara Pazova – Novi Sad section of the Belgrade – Budapest railway line. Besides, in compliance with another article of the document RZD International will draft a project of reconstruction and modernization of the 210 km long railway line connecting Valjevo – Vrbnica – frontier with Montenegro, aiming at its further implementation.
