OEVRZ sets up assembly process for innovative metro cars


Oktyabrsky Electric Railway Car Repair Plant (OEVRZ, is part of JSC Transmashholding), together with OJSC “Metrovagonmash” (is also part of the holding) has started implementation of car assembly of 81-765/766/767 series “Moskva”.  

To set up production of new for OEVRZ metro cars the required manufacturing equipment was installed, tooling for mounting of underframe equipment and movement of cars prepared, the set of design and technical documentation finalized.

The plant employees carry out the whole range of works on the assembly of new car type, including car body painting, installation of underframe and other equipment, as well as of air conditioning system, mounting of seats, interior coating, watering and trial runs before delivery to the customer. 

New design uses wider doorways compared to previous models, as well as pass-through along the entire train. The trains are equipped with the new door closing-opening light signalling system. They operate on modern asynchronous traction drive. The car design includes air conditioning and ventilation systems, USB sockets for charging passengers’ electric devices. Space for bicycles and carriages is also allocated in the trains. The trains also have minimized noise intensity and improved thermal insulation inside the cars. 

“Moskva” type cars meet the most up-to-date requirements for comfort level, energy efficiency and operational reliability. Thus far, they are one of the latest high-tech solutions in the field of metro construction worldwide. The rolling stock has been operated in the Moscow Metro since 2017. 

The first eight-car “Moskva” class train is expected to be manufactured at OEVRZ in June 2018. 

The rolling stock, produced at OEVRZ, has been successfully operated in metro systems of St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk since 2010. During this period, the plant manufactured over 400 metro cars of various modifications.
