Alstom, TMH bring high-speed vehicle to Moscow

Posted on February 29, 2012

Alstom and Transmashholding (TMH) showcased a modern, high-speed low-floor tramway designed for Russian cities to Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin.

Alstom and TMH intend to manufacture these new low-floor high-speed tramways in Russia. The partners aim at implementing in Moscow innovative solutions with regard to rolling stock design, traffic and passenger management, signaling systems and other rail aspects.

The tram-set presented in Moscow is a completely modular vehicle combining the latest know-how of modern tramway engineering based on Alstom flagship’s model Citadis. It is equipped with a new model of bogie to fit Moscow existing rail network, thus reducing the infrastructure preparation phase and cutting the operation costs.

State-of-the-art engineering solutions such as composite materials, new innovative bogie or modular sections used in this new model of tramway ensure easier repair and lower maintenance costs as well as energy savings (the use of composites reduces by 10% energy consumption), according to the two companies.
