Metrowagonmash completed the delivery of DP-S diesel multiple units to Serbia


OAO Metrowagonmash completed the performance of the supply contract for 27 DP-S DMUs to Serbian Railways. 

The DMU supply contract was signed in October 2014. The total cost of the rolling stock built by the Serbian order is USD 100 million. Previously in 2011 – 2013, Metrowagonmash manufactured 12 similar trains for Serbian Railways.

DP-S is the only DMU produced in series in Russia, which is designed for operation on the “European” 1425 mm track gauge. It is designed especially for Serbian Railways according to specifications provided by the customer. 

DMU is meant to carry passengers on non-electrified railway sections, and is equipped with advanced fuel-saving diesel engines. Inter-car gangways used in the train design provide for safe and comfortable passenger passage through the complete train. The driver’s cabs and all passenger compartments are equipped with HVAC system. 

In the car and close to the sanitary unit, a multifunctional area is located to store perambulators, bicycles, wheelchairs and oversize baggage. In the same area, folding seats are located on lateral walls on the side of and opposite to the sanitary unit. Passenger landing and unloading is foreseen both from high and low platforms as well as from the ground level. 

DP-S DMU complies with all requirements of current international standards and European regulations on the noise level, energy efficiency, quality of materials, and exhaust emissions. 

The Russian DMUs are based in depots of Vršac, Zrenyanin, Zajecar, Lapovo, Sombor, and Ruma. During operation, they received a lot of positive feedback from passengers, who appreciated the high level of assembly quality and comfort.
