Aktobe rail and structural steel mill LLP gained access to European markets
Aktobe rail and structural steel mill LLP in November of this year received certification from TÜV Rheinland for the production of European-style 60E1 rail rails according to EN 13674-1: 2017
This type of rail is used in the countries of the European Union, the Baltic states, as well as in the states of the Middle East and North Africa. This allows the company to expand the geography of sales of Kazakhstan rail and beam products and opens up new export markets.
Such rails differ from the usual P65 for us in such technical parameters as: rail height, neck height and thickness, head width. According to the representatives of ARBZ LLP, now the enterprise’s production facilities are completely ready for the commercial production of new products, and the official receipt of a certificate for the commercial production of 60E1 rails opens up new horizons for the export potential development before the plant.
We are currently in negotiations with the governing bodies responsible for the development of railways in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. In some cases, preliminary agreements on the supply of rails have already been reached, memorandums of cooperation with contractors from European countries have been signed”, - said Valery Obilets, Director General of ARBZ LLP.
