Ermewa: 780 new wagons rolling in 2022 and more to come
Ermewa, the French rolling stock leasing company, has provided the market with 530 newly built intermodal wagons in the third quarter of 2022. This number is going to increase by the end of the year, as the company stated, reaching 780 new wagons. Moreover, Ermewa claimed that 1,000 more new wagons will be coming by the end of 2023.
The 780 wagons batch consists of four different wagon types, namely Sgmmnss 40′, Sgnss 60′, Sggrss 80′ and Sggmrss 90’-foot wagons. All these new railcars will be equipped with future-proof technology such as a GPS device and pre-equipment to Digital Automatic Coupling (DAC). The 780 wagons will be leased to companies throughout Europe.
Manufactured by Inveho, Greenbrier, and Tatravagonka
Three companies are involved in the building process of the wagons: Inveho from France, Greenbrier headquartered in the United States, and Tatravagonka, based in Slovakia. “The new 90′ Sggmrss built by Inveho are a ton lighter than the common models of this size, allowing for more payload or less energy input in traction,” said Ermewa.
