The Mechanical Solutions Enterprise (SOMEC), in Cienfuegos, will receive the first 15 containers of spare parts necessary to restore the fleet of vehicles, which will then improve their performance and efficiency.
A second stage of the accord will be devoted to the assembly of no less than 500 vehicles, in order to satisfy the demands of the Cuban construction industry.
In an exclusive interview with ACN, First Deputy Minister of MICONS, Jorge Luis Rodríguez, said that this agreement between Cuba and the Ukraine will maintain technology already mastered by mechanics and technicians, besides reducing current expenditure on the purchase of spare parts.
The executive affirmed that this repair work will represent a source of employment for Cienfuegos and the revitalization of the vehicles repair works there.
Signing the document were SOMEC director Pedro Hernández, and Autokraz first vicepresident, Igori Fomienko.
