A passenger saloon meets all modern sanitary, ergonomic and safety standards and is equipped with HVAC system, eco-friendly toilet that can be used on all route including sanitary protection zones. A car is fitted with 2 and 6 seater couches and tables between them, also has a cooking zone with serving table, washer, dish dryer, catering cabinets, as well as a refrigerator, micro oven and electric kettle.
A technical car is equipped with boxes, cabinets and racks for tools. Mobile motor-driven crane is mounted on the ceiling to move cargo inside a car and optionally unload heavy equipment and parts from the train. Equipment kit in the car is completed with draw-out containers for spare parts and a convenient work-bench for mechanical works.
The new special-purpose EMU is built within a unified ED EMU platform and incorporates proven solutions, standardized underframe and carbody equipment to decrease in operating and maintenance expenses.
