The 150th UG mining electric locomotive was assembled at Kazzincmash, the machine factory of Kazzinc in Ridder. The first electric locomotive was manufactured there in 2001.
The decision to start this product line was made in 2000. At that time the factory was challenged to produce electric locomotives for Kazzinc mines.
In 2007 the first locomotives were exported. Today electric locomotives made by Kazzincmash are very popular with mining companies both in Kazakhstan and abroad due to their high quality and competitive price. The state-of-the-art machines are equipped with excellent safety systems, they are easy to operate and very reliable.
