Russian transport maker starts assembling RTM-32 machine sets in India

Providing a foretaste of what is to come in the railway's sector, India and Russia are cooperating. Russia’s Sinara Transport Machines (STM) has started assembling RTM-32 machine sets at San Engineering and Locomotives' manufacturing facility in India.

Sinara Transport Machines Holding , part of the Sinara Group technical experts, have recently begun assembling RTM-32 machine sets in India.

After the equipment is manufactured, STM employees will guide and supervise the start-up and adjustment processes. According to a statement from STM, SKD is being implemented as part of the government's Make in India programme, which requires at least 51% localisation.

Russia has a centuries-old railway network that it inherited from the Tsarist era and the Soviet Union, as well as a long history of cooperation with India. Russian Railways is one of the largest railway companies in the world, with one of the world's largest total lengths. Russian Railways transports the third most freight in the world and has several high-speed train projects planned between major cities. Russian Railways began a programme to introduce new high-speed trains between 2005 and 2010.

Sapsan, the first train, began service in December 2009 and connects Saint Petersburg, Moscow, and Nizhny Novgorod, using Siemens trains.

Russia has the world's longest railway line. The Trans–Siberian Railway is a railway network that connects Western Russia to Russia's Far East. With a length of 9,289 km or 5,772 miles, it is the world's longest railway line, running from Moscow to Vladivostok on the Pacific Ocean. Since 1916, the Trans-Siberian Railway has provided a direct link between Moscow and Vladivostok.

As of 2021, the railway system is still expanding, with connecting rails heading to Asia. There are also plans to build bridges between the mainland and the islands of Sakhalin and Hokkaido to connect Tokyo, Japan's capital, to the railway. As part of its Act Far East Policy, India is expanding its presence in the Russian Far East and has launched a trilateral with Japan and Russia.

STM also provided India with 19 machine sets for the production of ballast regulating and levelling machines (BRM).
