Alstom renovates trains for Hungary Metro

Posted on June 2, 2010

[IMAGE]AlstomBucharestFULL-1.jpg[/IMAGE] Last week, Alstom Transport delivered the first two renovated coaches of the Budapest Metro to the Metrorex workshop in Bucharest, Romania.

 

Alstom will renovate a total of 15 of the oldest train sets in the Bucharest Metro fleet. The trains were manufactured for Metrorex, the company that runs the Metro system, by Astra in Romania about 20 years ago. Alstom Transport’s teams in Reichshoffen, France have been entrusted with the engineering and industrialization of this renovation project. The coaches’ drivetrains and auxiliary converters also will be renovated as part of the project.

 

Additionally, the air production assemblies and braking systems will be replaced. The series will then be modernized in Alstom’s Bucharest workshops, where Alstom supervises maintenance operations on the Metro’s train sets.

 

The first renovated train set is scheduled to come into commercial service in November, 2010. Mass renovation of the train sets will begin in June 2010 and is scheduled to be completed by March 2012.
