Interpipe developed new wheel type for EU market

Interpipe, a global producer of steel pipes and railway products based in Ukraine, developed a new type of wheels for the European Union market for the first time since Russia invaded Ukraine and even shipped the debut, experimental batch to the customer.
The Company started its development before the invasion. The main client’s request was a special shape of the 840 mm wheel disc. Interpipe’s railway division R&D center successfully coped with this task. This is a category 2 wheel made of ER7 steel according to the European standard.
This product is designed for 1435 mm electric railway rolling stock. It can be installed on electric trains for ordinary long-distance transportation. Very shortly, Ukrainian wheels will be on the cars of the national railway network in one of the largest EU countries.
