TMH Signed an Agreement for Production of Trams with Mayor of Moscow


Mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin and the president of TMH, member of Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs Andrei Bokarev signed an agreement to establish a contemporary transport engineering center – a tech park – for manufacturing and servicing tramway carriages in Moscow.

Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow: “Moscow tram fleet renewal program is almost complete at 70%. With the existing and upcoming contracts, we expect to have 100% of Moscow tram fleet renewed in three to four years. Life, however, does not stop there. Moscow, as well as other cities, will need new trams. Moreover, all this machinery will need to be serviced and repaired. This is why we reached an agreement with the largest Russian manufacturer TMH to create a tech park with the capacity to manufacture and service trams.”

The signing ceremony took place at Bauman Depot, which recently accepted the 300th “Vityaz” tram. The ongoing contract between Mosgortrans, TMH Mytishi Plant, and PC Transport Systems outlines that Moscow will receive a total of 390 trams by the end of 2020.

Today, tram cars “Vityaz-Moskva” service 15 city routes and move over 2.1 million passengers every week. Their advantages include high passenger capacity, durability, speed, ride smoothness, and passenger comfort. These trams feature low-level floors and other accessibility options.

Their standard options include contemporary control systems, GLONASS\GPS location services, video surveillance, USB outlets, WIFI, media-boxes, and climate control. The latter – in both passenger compartments and driver cabins.

The service life of “Vityaz-Moskva” under a lifecycle contract amounts to 30 years, which is twice the number of previous models.
