TVZ gained the right to manufacture new special-purpose passenger cars

At Tver Carriage Repair Works (TVZ, part of JSC Transmashholding), the certification process is completed for cars used for transportation of special passenger categories – persons given in custody or imprisoned by the court order for some reasons (persons on remand and convicts). 

New cars (Mod. 61-4495) meet all requirements of technical regulations of the Customs Union “On Rolling Stock Safety”. 

Model 61-4495 vehicles to transport special passenger categories are newly developed by TVZ experts basing on the advanced Series 44 passenger cars. One of its main differences from the previous versions of the mentioned car type is the longer carbody consisting of anticorrosion steel. This made it possible to modify the inner car layout meeting the requirements to special transportation organization, to improve ergonomics and internal microclimate. 

The car service life is at least 40 years. Car Model 61-4495 is developed to comply with requirements of SanPIN and other regulatory documents including those regarding sanitary conditions, and with due view to comments and suggestions received from human rights organizations, the Presidential Human Rights Commission and the Federal Service on the Execution of Penalties, which is to use this rolling stock.

This is the first car with installed air and water disinfection systems, a two-circuit HVAC system. 

The certificate entitles the plant to launch serial production.
