RZD Holding, JSC Sinara Group and Siemens sign agreement of intent to create new Lastochka modifications

RU EN

Pyotr Ivanov, Managing Director of OAO Federal Passenger Company, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, Mikhail Khodorovsky, Managing Director of CJSC Sinara Group, and Jochen Eickholt, Chief Executive Officer of the Mobility Department at Siemens AG, have signed an agreement on their intention to create a new generation of Lastochka long distance electric passenger trains.

The signing took place in the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in the presence of Oleg Belozerov, President of OJSC Russian Railways.

The three parties intend to consider the possibility of manufacturing Lastochka electric trains to operate on the passenger transportation routes of the Federal Passenger Company.

For this purpose, it is planned to agree the draft technical assignment for Lastochka electric trains with various modifications for operation on different long-distance routes and also to study the possibility of purchasing rolling stock under leasing schemes.

At present, the Federal Passenger Company rents Lastochka electric trains for operation on the routes between Moscow-Orel, Moscow-Kursk, Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod, St. Petersburg-Petrozavodsk and Adler-Krasnodar.

The new trains could be used both along existing routes which are already popular with passengers and on new ones following an analysis of potential passenger traffic.

The Ural Locomotives Limited Liability Company, a joint venture of the Sinara Group and Siemens AG, will manufacture the electric trains.
