New EMUs made by Transmashholding will serve guests of the 29th Winter Universiade


Transmashholding will ship five new “EP3D” EMUs made by Demikhovsky Engineering Plant (part of Transmashholding) to Russian Railways. Two 4-unit and three 6-unit AC rakes will leave to the customer within upcoming days. They will serve the Krasnoyarsk Rail Range. Next spring, these “EP3D” EMUs will serve as means of transportation for guests and fans of the 29th World Winter Universiade, held in Krasnoyarsk 2 to 12 March. “EP3D” represents the new line of EMUs produced by Demikhovsky Engineering Plant. Many of the used parts and components are interchangeable with “EP2D” DC EMUs. The model complies with all passenger safety requirements, as outlined by the Technical Regulation of the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, and Armenia. The EMUs boast contemporary exterior (smooth body, aerodynamic front). The carriages are equipped with a passive safety system (crash-module), a climate support system with anti-bacterial filtering, an information system, and eco-friendly bathrooms. “EP3D” have accessibility areas; all labels throughout the trains have braille doubling. Prior to the Universiade in Krasnoyarsk, to ensure proper transportation scheduling, the manufacturer will coordinate maintenance of its “EP3D” trains. In partnership with Krasnoyarsk Directorate of Rolling Stock, they will develop special “technical first aid kits” with the full selection of anything needed for conducting repairs on the spot. Additionally, skilled repair personnel will strengthen local depots. “EP3D” EMUs are produced since 2016. Today, they are operated in Russia and Kazakhstan.
