TMH delivers new trains to the Baku metro
TMH has delivered 20 metro trainsets – the equivalent of four trains – of the 81-765.B/766.B series to the Baku metro network (Azerbaijan).
The contract for the production and delivery of 60 metro trainsets of the 81-765.B/766.B series was signed by Metrowagonmash (a subsidiary of Transmashholding, chaired by Andrey Bokarev) and Baku Metropolitan in autumn of 2019.
The 81-765.B/766.B series metro trains have a high level of soundproofing and thermal insulation, air conditioning and ventilation systems. The automatic air disinfection system with UV filters provides additional protection against the spread of bacterial infections and viruses. Inside the trains, LED lamps adapt the lighting to the time of day – invigorating cold light in the morning and warm light in the evening. The trains have USB sockets and the seat covers are wear-resistant.
The front cars have seats for passengers with reduced mobility, as well as space for bicycles. The train has a walkway, enlarged entrance doors to speed up the entry and exit of passengers, and a new light system to indicate when the doors are open and closed. The estimated lifespan use of these metro trains is 30 years.
Between 2020 and 2023 the factory is to deliver 12 metro trains consisting of five units each to the customer.
Metrowagonmash has been supplying rolling stock to the capital of Azerbaijan since 1967. The Baku Metro currently operates more than 300 metro trains manufactured in Mytishchi, a suburb of Moscow.
