Metrovagonmash, part of Transmashholding, has delivered the last metro train set to Baku (Azerbaijan) on 21 April.
Each train set has two head cars and three intermediate motor cars. All cars have a through passage and wider doorways, as well as a new door closing-opening light warning system. The design uses a new modern asynchronous traction drive, and provides noise and heat insulation of the cars. The design also includes air conditioning and ventilation systems, as well as sockets for charging passengers’ electronic devices. Special space for carriages and large items is allocated in the trains. The estimated trains service life is 31 years.
The contract concluded with the Baku Metropolitan concerned the supply of two 81-765/766 series trains and was signed in February this year. The first train was sent from Metrovagonmash’s plant a month ago and is already being operated on the Baku metro network.
