Operations of track machines

Business direction "Operation of track machines" – a long-term cooperation with the Customer
On the basis of a long-term contract with the Customer, the PTK Group has the opportunity to implement strategic planning and conduct advanced development of new equipment.

Track machines is not an asset for infrastructure owners, but costs.
 
One of the ways to optimise costs and improve the efficiency of machine operation is the outsourcing.
 
The Customer concludes a long-term contract for maintenance of the infrastructure by a mechanised method for a period comparable to the life cycle of the machinery.
 
Within the framework of the project, the PTK Group supplies new machines or updates the Customer's machine fleet, carries out maintenance and repairs, performs trackworks by its own personnel.
 
When transferring works for outsourcing, the Customer reduces operating costs and receives an economic effect. At the same time, the PTK Group assumes all risks associated with the introduction of new technologies and advanced machines on the Customer's infrastructure.
The PTK Group has a proven experience of implementing the project with JSCo "Russian Railways" on the basis of a long-term contract until 2030. During the implementation of the project, a direct economic effect has been achieved for JSCo "Russian Railways"both at the expense of reducing operating costs, and at the expense of reducing the investment load.
Such a business model reduce the cost of operations of track machines
and attract private investment in its updating.
