In mid-December 2020, OVK (UWC) announced that it will supply a batch of 360 flat wagons to inter-modal container operator Trans Sinergia (Trans Synergy) of Moskva. The new stock will enter the operator's fleet under a trilateral contract made between OVK, Trans Sinergia and GTLK (Gosudarstvennaya Transportnaya Lizingovaya Kompania, State Transport Leasing Company), the largest customer for innovative wagons in Russia.
The Model 13-6903 wagon is designed to carry containers, including refrigerated containers and tank containers, with a gross weight of up to 36 tonnes, and also large-capacity containers.
