EVRAZ expands Brazilian presence
EVRAZ has signed a contract to supply rails to a major South American railway operator. EVRAZ will ship over 23 thousand tonnes of EVRAZ ZSMK head-hardened rails to RUMO ALL in 2016 and 2017. The first lot - 5 thousand tonnes – is planned to be shipped in March.
In February RUMO ALL representatives including the Head of the engineering department, Mr. Leonardo Soares, visited EVRAZ ZSMK to inspect the facility and evaluated the high quality of rails.
RUMO ALL is a new railway company, created by merger of RUMO LOGISTICA and ALL. The operator owns more than 10 thousand kilometers of track in Brazil, several ports with aggregate capacity of 19 million tonnes, 996 locomotives and 28 thousand of railcars. The company is intensively developing and expanding its business. For its new railway projects RUMO ALL intends to use EVRAZ's products.
