author: Lubov Kolokolova

The company “VITYAZ” from the town of Ishimbay is ready to deliver its cross-country vehicles for JSC “SURGUTNEFTEGAS” for transportation of people and freights. The company’s two-section caterpillar transporters are considered now as the alternative to traditional helicopters. If the tests prove to be successful, the company will make the decision to buy a lot of the cross-country vehicles from Ishimbay already at the beginning of summer, the news-service of JSC “Chelyabinsk tractor plant” reports.

Specialists agree in the opinion that the ground deliveries will cost much cheaper to northerners. Besides, the cross-country vehicles from Ishimbay don’t afraid of weather forecasts.

At present time the JSC “Machine-building company VITYAZ” is a daughter company of JSC “Chelyabinsk tractor plant” and it is the leader in production of the machines with high cross-country ability, meant for transportation of people and freights under especially severe climatic and road conditions.

“VITYAZ” is the only producer of the unique two-section caterpillar transporters in Russia. The company produces six modifications of the cross-country vehicles with carrying capacity 5-30 tons and about 30 variants of the transport and technological complexes, mounted on the chassis of the transporters “VITYAZ”.
