Technologiya has supplied driver’s cabin glazing for the newest domestic RA-3 rail buses

2 August 2019
High-strength electrically heated glazing produced by ORPE Technologiya named after A.G.Romashin had been installed in the driver's cabins of the first three RA-3 rail buses, which on July 26, 2019 went to Sakhalin to provide passenger transportation. By the end of this year, the enterprise will supply the railway car-building plant with five more sets.

A set of structural optics products for the RA-3 driver’s cabin consists of a windshield and side windows. The windshield is a unique one. Specialists of ORPE Technologiya have developed a high-strength panoramic triplex that is 2.3 meters long and 1.5 meters high, made of sheet silicate glass and has a maximized driver's field of view. Availability of electric heating makes it possible to   operate the equipment comfortably and safely in all climatic conditions. These products are certified for compliance with the technical regulations of the Eurasian Customs Union (EACU).

Technologiya has also supplied glass for the headlights and ditch lights of the RA-3.

“Technologiya is one of the leading producers of the driver’s cabin glazing for the railway transport and occupies more than 50% of the Russian market. The company manufactures 300 types of products for the railway industry and continues to expand its range. Currently, we are ready to begin serial deliveries of driver’s cabin glazing for the innovative gas-turbine locomotive TEMG1 and a new model of the Russian mainline freight locomotive 2TE25K-2TE25K3M. These products have already been entered into the register of suppliers for the railway industry”, said Andrei Silkin, Director General of ORPE Technologiya.

RA-3 rail bus is the most recent development of CJSC Transmashholding (JSC Metrowagonmash). The equipment can be used for suburban passenger transportation on non-electrified sections of railways. The design speed of the RA-3 is 120 km / h, which is 20% higher compared to its predecessors. The first three buses will soon begin to carry passengers on Sakhalin Island.
