In late October 2022, NEVZ started delivery of a batch of 29 Class 3ES5K Yermak freight locomotives under the supplementary agreement signed between TMH and RZD.
A total of 130 Class 3ES5Ks will be delivered to RZD this year. 101 of them have already been received by the customer between March and September this year. The Yermak family has been produced at NEVZ since 2006. Since the end of 2018, Class 3ES5K locomotives have been built in a modification with individual axle traction control, which made it possible to haul freight trains weighing up to 7,100 tonnes in the conditions of the eastern range of Russian railways.
