TMH to ship 21 EP2D EMUs to Central Exurban Passenger Company


TMH will ship 21 direct current electric trains produced at its plant in Demikhi to Central Exurban Passenger Company (“CPPK”).

In accordance to the contracts signed in February-March 2019, and with support from Sberbank Leasing, TMH will manufacture 231 carriages.

The trains will be in 11-car composition. Out of them, 18 will be designed for high platforms; three will fit both high and low platforms with their drop-down walkways.

EP2D trains comply with international regulations on passenger transportation safety; carry passive safety features (crash-systems); utilize climate control with air purification; support advanced passenger information features; and are equipped with environmentally friendly bathrooms, handles for standing passengers, and bike racks. 

EP2D trains follow barrier-free concept. The head cars have wheelchair braces; information signs have braille duplicates. The high platform trains have ramp doors for rolling inside. Three low platform trains will be equipped with wheelchair lifts.

Contemporary technical solutions utilized in the trains allow their operating company to significantly reduce operational costs. A train’s cost of ownership, considered over its lifespan of 30 years, projects 20-50% lower compared to existing Russia alternatives.

Central Exurban Passenger Company buys EP2D since 2016. Since then, 60 new trains were added to its fleet. In 2018, the company bought 20 EP2D trains.
