OEVRZ has launched a brand new industrial complex

OEVRZ (part of CJSC "Transmashholding") held an official opening ceremony of a new manufacturing complex specialized in the production on rolling stock for the urban railway transportation. 

The construction of the new industrial facilities was enabled through the efforts on the site restructuring, freeing-up inefficiently used surfaces, and concentration of industrial activities. The territory of the newly deployed manufacturing complex covers more than 15 000 sq.m. 

The new industrial capacities are planned to be used for the production of modern metro cars and tramways. One of significant features of the newly deployed facility is the application of flexible technologies allowing for its quick adaptation to new types of activities. Its deployment will mark a new milestone in the history of the industrial development of Saint Petersburg and support the city's image as one of the technological leaders in our country. 

The industrial complex comprises several buildings. One of them will be set for the construction of rolling stock. Another one will serve for the products testing activities. The testing facility is equipped with modern hardware to undertake a wide range of tests and commissioning activities. Moreover, a modern office building has been built in order to provide the employees with comfortable working conditions. A 1200m long special railway track has also been constructed for dynamic tests. 

The construction of the complex started in 2012. It is planned to employ more than 300 persons in the new workshops. The manufacturing capabilities of the new facilities account for around 200 cars per year.
