Russian gas giant Gazprom has signed a deal to purchase 24 liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered locomotives from the Sinara Group.

The deal was signed on Friday in St. Petersburg by Gazpromtrans and Sinara-Transport Machines and STM Trading House, according to a Gazprom statement.

Under the deal, Sinara will design, certify and launch batch production of shunting locomotives powered by LNG in line with Gazprom’s requirements.

From 2019 to 2024, STM Trading House will supply Gazpromtrans with 10 shunting locomotives with a capacity of up to 1,200 horsepower and 14 shunting locomotives with a capacity of up to 2,000 horsepower, the statement reads. STM Trading House will also provide maintenance services.

Gazpromtrans is a unit of Gazprom that provides freight forwarding services to Gazprom’s enterprises and serves as the operator of the Obskaya – Bovanenkovo railroad owned by the Russian company.

The LNG-powered locomotives will be used at the Obskaya – Bovanenkovo railroad that is a part of Gazprom’s Yamal megaproject.

The railroad, which, stretches for 572 kilometers, ensures year-round delivery of machinery, construction materials and personnel to Yamal fields in the harsh Arctic climate.
