Building NATO flatcars to boost Daugavpils' industry

Flatcars for transporting NATO military equipment will be produced at the Daugavpils department of LDz Ritošā sastāva serviss starting early next year, Edgars Abrams, a board member at the company told Latvian Radio Thursday.

Daugavpils, the second largest city in Latvia, will see a lot of industrial action in the coming years.

"We will be building NATO flatcars. This, I think, is a project we'll be carrying out from early next year," said Abrams, noting that local workers will be involved in the process.

Coincidentally, Daugavpils is already becoming more busy as Thursday saw the arrival of the first of the 14 Latvian Railways cars to be modernized in the city by February 2019.

"Daugavpils will be a citadel for the new modernization project. [...] Daugavpils still is and will be a technology center in Latvia," said Abrams.
