The ceremonial dispatch of the first two 81-765.B/766.B metro trains to Baku Metro took place at Mytishi TMH Plant. TMH CEO Kirill Lipa, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Azerbaijan Polad Bülbüloğlu, Chairman of Baku metro Zaur Mir Tofik oglu Guseynov, and CEO of Mytishi TMH Plant Boris Bogatyrev attended the ceremony.

The contract to supply 30 81-765.B/766.B metro cars to the capital of Azerbaijan was signed on January 31, 2019.  Trains of this series are already running effortlessly in Baku metro. In 2018, TMH already supplied two five-car trains to Baku metro, which received positive reviews from the passengers. 

According to the contract, six 81-765.B/766.B five-car trains will be built before the end of 2019.  

The trains feature wider door openings compared to the previous model, walk-through passage design, new door open-close light alert system, excellent noise and heat insulation, air conditioning and ventilation, and USB outlets. The head cars have platforms for passengers with accessibility needs. A distinctive purple colour scheme was designed specifically for Baku cars, along with tweaks to headlights and the information system.

“When the same customers turn to us time and again, it speaks volumes about our long term relations, implies that we are trusted, that the machinery we produce meets our customers’ expectations and it makes the very foundation of our production and the company’s development. I heartily congratulate you on today’s event and would like to thank the management of Baku metro for this opportunity to work and to produce metro cars”, - said Kirill Lipa, CEO of TMH.   

“Today the first 10 cars are ready for dispatch. Cars of 765 series, which we produced for Baku, are the latest development of our plant, incorporating all innovative solutions, -said CEO of Mytishi TMH Plant Boris Bogatyrev. - I am convinced these cars will add up to the beauty of Baku metro, and the inhabitants and the visitors of the city will enjoy their ride. This year we are going to fulfil the contract within the set time limits, and I thank the personnel of the plant for their efforts. Our cooperation with the metro shall continue and develop further”.
