About the company

JSC "VNIKTI" is a joint-stock company "Research and Design-Technological Institute of Rolling Stock", a subsidiary of JSC "Russian Railways".

The enterprise was founded in 1956 as an industrial research diesel locomotive institute of the USSR Ministry of Transport Engineering.

The main goal of JSC VNIKTI is to promote the development of railway transport, increase the efficiency and reliability of its operation, create and introduce unique products that have no Russian or foreign analogues and ensure improved quality of railway transport in the Russian Federation and, at the same time, reduced costs.

Based on the results of completed research and development work, the institute develops and implements components and assemblies for newly created and in operation locomotives, freight cars and track machines.

On the basis of JSC VNIKTI, there operates a Rolling Stock Testing Center (IC PS of JSC VNIKTI), accredited in the SSFZhT (Certification System for Federal Railway Transport), which carries out certification, acceptance and other tests for compliance with safety standards of all types of traction rolling stock, and also the most critical units, parts and systems.

Scientific and technical potential

Today JSC “VNIKTI” is a modern multidisciplinary institute that employs over 500 highly qualified specialists, including 5 doctors and 25 candidates of science. The institute’s staff is replenished with young specialists – graduates of the country’s leading universities.

The experimental base and school of scientific and design personnel created at the institute allow for scientific research, development, production and comprehensive testing of traction rolling stock, cars and track machines and their individual components and systems. The bench department of the institute includes over 40 stands for various types of tests, a climatic testing laboratory, including heat and cold chambers, specialized laboratory cars for carrying out dynamic strength, traction and heat engineering, electrical, braking, vibroacoustic, diagnostic tests of locomotives and cars and track machines.

The results of many years of work by several generations of scientists, developers, and designers allowed the institute to take a leading place in Russia and abroad in the implementation and implementation of large-scale projects for the creation and modernization of rolling stock
