Russian Railways to Buy Electric Trains in 2011-13 for Suburban Lines in Southern Russia and 2014 Sochi Olympics.

On 20 January 2009, Russian Railways (RZD) will hold Open Tender No.567 for a contract to design and supply up to 54 electric trains for suburban passenger lines in southern Russia. They will also serve the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

The tender is open to both Russian and foreign equipment manufacturers. The closing date for bids is 19 January 2009, and the trains are to be delivered in 2011-2013.

The electric trains must be designed to travel at speeds of up to 160 km/hour and operate on both AC and DC power supply. They must have a service life of 40 years or 7 million km from date of delivery.

It is planned that each train will have a capacity of up to 1000 passengers and they will be designed for a high standard of passenger comfort.

Particular attention will be given to the needs of disabled passengers, for whom the carriages will be fitted with special doors, seats and toilets.




Between 2008 and 2030, RZD plans to purchase 24,450 new motor railcars as part of Russia’s rail transport development strategy to 2030.
