On 7 December 2022, NYMWAG CS presented to invited guests its new handover hall. This is the first new building to be built in the Nymburk workshop during NYMWAG CS's presence there, symbolically on the site of the oldest building on its premises. It was built on the foundations of a former wheelsets’ repair shop built in 1888.
The latter’s basic configuration with three tracks, two of which have inspection pits, was taken over. However, it is a completely new structure made of sandwich panels on the foundations of the original building. The 41 x 21 m floorplan allows for two standard or one articulated wagon on each track. Another ongoing investment concerns the blast hall, which will further facilitate the production process and reduce energy consumption.
Despite the complicated economic situation and the significant increase in costs, NYMWAG CS will achieve further production growth in 2022 with a volume of 940 wagons, up from 894 ones delivered last year, and the plan for 2023 is 1,180. Another impact of the current situation is an increase in demand for tank wagons, for which an additional production line is currently being set up here - so there will be seven lines in total at the Nymburk works.
