16 January 2020Alstom’s JV KEP[1] manufactured its 3000th P80 point machine for Kazakhstan Railways. Reduced maintenance cost of P80 point machine during the lifecycle makes the point machine be an optimal investment over time.

Manufactured in KEP, Almaty Alstom’s P80 point machine is designed to operate with low maintenance level while providing the highest level of safety. P80 point machine is certified for speeds up to 180 km/h and lifetime up to 20 years of commercial operation with unlimited times of 15 years extension after overhaul maintenance. Alstom has installed more than 50,000 point machines in over 30 countries worldwide.

"We are proud that we have produced our 3000th P80 point machine for Kazakhstan Railways. This proves that our product is reliable and totally fits local infrastructure. We will continue delivering the point machines to our partner Kazakhstan Railways", said Irina Lukoshkova, General Director of KEP JV.

Point machine is an electromechanical transfer mechanism used in railway transport and designed to move, lock and continuously control the position of the turnout.

KEP was formed in 2013 and was awarded a €90 million contract for the supply of 10,000 point machines to KTZ. Today KEP is owned 50/50 by Alstom and Special Oil Projects. With a total surface of 2,870m2, KEP employs more than 50 people and is working on supplying the point machines P80 to KTZ.
