TMH will overhaul metro cars for Nizhny Novgorod

At its St. Petersburg plant, TMH will perform a comprehensive overhaul with service life extension of 26 metro cars 81-717/714 for Nizhny Novgorod Metro.

According to the contract, the plant will receive support from Sberbank Leasing and finish operations by the end of 2019. The cars will be shipped to Nizhny Novgorod Depo.

The service life of the overhauled cars will be extended by 15 years. Repairs will be done to passenger compartments, ventilation, crew cabins, bogies, and electric motors. Both head and middle cars will be subjected to refurbishment. After the procedure, the cars will meet today’s requirements for comfort, energy efficiency, and reliability.

Passenger compartments will be equipped with easy to clean damage-resistant materials that insure complete removal of graffiti and sticker ads.

TMH St. Petersburg plant worked for Nizhny Novgorod Metro before. In 2017-2018, the plant refurbished the same model metro cars, wheel pairs, and electric engines.
