NEVZ manufactures special modification traction unit NP1 for OJSC “Pavlovsk Nerud”


The Novocherkassk Electric Locomotives Plant (NEVZ, part of JSC Transmashholding) has manufactured NP1 No.081 traction unit of a special design and delivered it to OJSC “Pavlovsk Nerud”.  

OJSC “Pavlovsk Nerud”, specializing in the extraction and production of the crushed stone on the Europe's largest granite deposit - the “Shkurlatovskoye” (Voronezh region), ordered in 2017 a traction unit of lower power if to compare with the standard specification. The rated power of an original NP1 with 2 dump cars is 7.600 kWt and with traction effort equal to 1.050 kN. However, for the “Pavlovsk Nerud” these characteristics are excessive. Thus, the NP1 in a one-dump car modification with the rated power of 5.200 kWt and traction effort of 700 kN was quickly and efficiently manufactured by the plant under the customer's technical requirements. 

NP1, manufactured for “Pavlovsk Nerud”, consists of two traction units - electric locomotive section and one motorized dump car. The electric locomotive car body has a central driver's cab, designed to meet modern ergonomic and aesthetic requirements and equipped with air conditioning system. 

NP1 traction units have been produced at NEVZ since 2004, in most cases are purchased to replace the traction industrial units of the OPE1 series. This equipment successfully operates on mining and processing plants and opencast coal mines in Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.
