    The Turkmen delegation, representing the country's railway sector, is taking part in the largest international exhibition of transport technologies – InnoTrans 2022, which is held in Berlin from September 20 to 23.

    From the moment it was first held in 1996 to the present day, InnoTrans has been the leading international rail transport show. InnoTrans 2022 brought together more than 2,800 exhibitors from 56 countries in 42 exhibition halls and outdoor areas – this is a unique coverage of the market.

    Representatives of the agency "Turkmenistan Railways" got acquainted with the world technological innovations in the field of transportation and held a number of meetings with the leadership of well-known European companies.

    Negotiations were also held with Techne, which raised the flag of Turkmenistan on the roof of its office in honor of the guests.

    As a result of the negotiations, a memorandum of cooperation was signed between Turkmen Railways and Techne, which manufactures railway cranes.
    By the way, Techne is the new name of the company, formerly known as Kirow and dating back to 1880. The renaming took place this week as part of a rebranding focused on sustainability, modernization and dynamism.

    On the territory of the "Kirov" plant in Leipzig, a few years ago, one of the latest projects of the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer was implemented - a white reinforced concrete sphere with liquid crystal glazing, hanging from a red brick building in contrast. They named it Technesphere. From this word, the name Techne was chosen.

    It should be noted that cooperation between Techne and the railways of Turkmenistan began in the 60s of the XX century. At the moment, 14 EDK cranes are operating in recovery trains on the country's railways.
    Rail transport is increasingly becoming part of networked mobility. InnoTrans 2022 takes this trend into account by presenting it in the technology and infrastructure segments.

    The head and employees of the Embassy of Turkmenistan in Germany took the most active part in organizing the business program of the visit of the Turkmen delegation.
