Maximum availability thanks to expanded partnership

The high quality of Plasser & Theurer’s original spare parts is very much appreciated in Russia. On 21 June 2018, we signed a three-year collaboration agreement on the overhaul of machines with our long-term partner OJSC Kaluga Plant Remputmash.


OJSC Kaluga Plant Remputmash is part of the RPM Group, which operates 39 branch offices in the Russian Federation, employing around 4,000 persons in the field of repair and service. OJSC Kaluga Plant Remputmash was awarded with a contract for the overhaul of the entire fleet of track maintenance machines of Russian Railways (RZD). The three-years contract includes class 1 technical overhauls, class 2 technical overhauls and general overhauls.

High-quality spare parts are needed to complete these extensive works on the machines. The new agreement ensures the supply of these parts. 

The reliability of Plasser & Theurer’s technology is highly appreciated

Thanks to Plasser & Theurer’s sophisticated technology and know-how, the service life of the machines exceeds two decades by far. Regular overhauls and the use of original spare parts make it possible to extend the service life even further. 

For more than 40 years, we have collaborated successfully with RZD. In this time, we implemented a great number of projects for the expansion and modernisation of one of the largest railway networks in the world. More than 1,000 machines put into operation in the Russian Federation provide impressive proof of the great success which can be achieved when a reliable partnership is upheld for many decades. For many years, Plasser & Theurer has been a cooperation partner of OJSC Kaluga Plant Remputmash for the manufacture of various machine models. In the last five years alone, 47 track maintenance machines (including track and turnout tamping machines, ballast cleaning machines, universal track maintenance machines with plough section and sweeper section) have been produced at OJSC Kaluga Plant Remputmash on the basis of cooperation agreements.
