Russia’s United Wagon Company has signed a deal to supply 6,000 freight wagons to Iran within three years, of which 4,900 cars will be produced inside the Islamic Republic.
UWC signed a preliminary agreement in Tehran on Sunday to supply 1,100 CBU (Completely Built Unit) wagons to Iran in two years, 900 of which are to be imported in the first year of signing the final contract, Shata news agency, affiliated with the Ministry of Industries reported.
As for the 4,900 cars, they will be produced jointly with three Iranian companies" Arak-based Wagon Pars will manufacture 2,200 wagons, Arak Steel 1,250 and the rest will be produced by Wagon Kowsar.
Based on the terms of the agreement, UWC will gradually transfer the manufacturing technology to Iranian companies so that in three years, most of the parts can be manufactured in Iran.
The Russian company has agreed to finance the contract. However, no financial detail is yet available.
