"Power-plant machinery rheostat" (Pskov region)., A subsidiary of OJSC "Power Machines", manufactured and shipped to the customer — JSC "Demikhovsky Machine Building Plant" — the first test batch of electrical equipment for railway cars.
The contract for the supply of energy-efficient electrical equipment for 108 electric train cars of ED-9E was made between "Power-plant machinery rheostat" and OAO "Demikhovsky Machine Building Plant" in March 2012. In accordance with the terms of the agreement, "Power Machines factory rheostat" manufacture and deliver to the end of this year, 18 sets of six-car electric Composite, including two head, three motor and a trailer. The composition includes one set of panel blocks, transformers, switches, splitters and phase traction motors and other devices.
The equipment is designed for the new series of suburban electric trains, which will be put to the Gorky Railway (a subsidiary of Russian Railways) to improve the quality of transport services in preparation for the XXVII World Summer Universiade (2013, Kazan).
Currently, the "Power Machines factory rheostat" shipped to the customer first test batch of electrical brain and trailer cars will soon be shipped to the pilot batch of electric motor car. After mounting the equipment will be tested in the pilot ring VNIIZhT Scherbinka (Moscow region). According to the results of tests "Power Machines factory rheostat" move to serial production and delivery of electrical equipment.
In the new project "Power Machines factory rheostat" continue the successful cooperation with Demikhovsky Engineering Plant. In 2008, energy-efficient electrical equipment for electric AC made in Pskov, was installed on an experimental electric train ED-9E devyativagonnoy Composite, which has been certified and passed the performance tests in the North-Caucasian railway.
Today "Power Machines factory rheostat" — the only Russian manufacturer of electrical equipment for electric with energy-efficient technology.
