Transmashholding has presented a two-car version of ЭП2Д EMU

2017 CJSC Transmashhomding, the largest Russian rail manufacturer, has presented a two car ЭП2Д DC EMU to the professional community.

The presentation was done in Scherdinka at the VIth International Rail Fair “Expo 1520”. 

ЭП2Д EMU, produced by Demikhovo Machine Building Plant (DMZ, forming part of Transmashholding), combines an up-to-date design with its functionality, comfort and economic feasibility. The vehicle meets the strictest requirements for passenger safety. 

What distinguishes ЭП2Д from others is that it may have from 2 to 12 cars. It makes the train highly adaptable for operations on any routes. A possibility to build a train with a small number of cars (2-3 cars) is especially demanded for commuter rails with a low passenger load. 

The car is equipped with special fittings to carry bikes, folding baby changing tables and seats for disabled passengers. Besides, ЭП2Д is fitted with a stairlift to lift a wheelchair from a low platform, a lavatory for disabled people and a special space where the wheelchairs can be fixed. For passengers convenience there are displays to monitor the routes, a wireless access to the local entertainment portal via WiFi with a possibility to access the Internet, and sockets. 

The train is equipped with a restrain system (pre-crash system), HVAC with air disinfection. 

There is an energy saving equipment used in the EMU, which helps save up to 20% of energy, a powerful static auxiliary convertor, which allows to significantly decrease the noise level and vibration in cabins. 

Since 2016 four- and eleven-car ЭП2Д EMUs have been delivered to the largest Russian commuter rail operator – JSC “Central Commuter Rail Passenger Company”. 257 cars are under operation now.
