Ukrzaliznytsia is considering selling and/or transferring private investors from 13 to 17 depots.

"Ukrzaliznytsya" can give in concession 17 locomotive depot

This was stated at a meeting with financial analysts and experts of investment market Director for Economics and Finance "Railways" Andrey Ryazantsev, Biznestsentr reports with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

"We have three groups, depot repair, service and mixed. After we held certain types of calculations, we concluded that 17 of the 47 depot we can safely natural indicators to close, and perhaps - to offer them for use to private investors," said Ryazantsev.

According to the scenario of "reducing the number of depots to optimally necessary," 17 the depot is transferred to the free market. This will reduce the cost of maintenance of about $ 350 million per year and to about 40 million per year through the lease, but at the same time will not allow for additional volumes of repairs.

It is also proposed partial reheating repairs and the development of other works. Such a scenario provides for additional volumes of repair of cars in the amount of 12 thousand a year and additional funds (margin 30%). Among the risks - untimely provision of such depot labor, financial and material resources, but also the shortfall in revenues.

At the same time, according to Ryazantsev, the most likely to implement the "Ukrzaliznytsya" considers "mixed" scenario. It provides for the transfer to the free market only 13 depot. This will reduce the cost of their maintenance in the amount of approximately 210 million per year to about 25 million per year through rent. The remaining depot may be unclaimed in the market due to obsolete repair facilities, and uz will not receive part of the savings and additional funds from the lease.
