TMH shipped five metro trains to Uzbekistan

An official shipping ceremony of five Model 81-765.5/766.5/767.5 metro trains to Tashkent Metro took place at TMH Mytishi Plant.

The function was attended by the ambassador of Uzbekistan to Russia Botirjon Asadov, the head of Tashkent Metro Oybek Khudoykulov, the senior managing director of VEB.RF Igor Shabanov, and the general director of TMH Mytishi Plant Boris Bogatyrev.

The contract to supply five 4-carriage metro trains to Tashkent metro was signed in October 2018. Each train consists of two head motorized carriages, one intermediate motorized carriage, and one intermediate non-motorized carriage. The lifecycle of the rolling stock is 30 years. The manufacturer will also provide spare parts and consult the customer on performing maintenance.

The rolling stock was customized to better suit Tashkent Metro needs and carries a number of technical innovations. The trains feature pass-through design, custom-made low-strain wheels with noise dampening, contemporary asynchronous traction drives, noise isolation, and insulation. Their doorways are larger (1400mm) than those on the previous models and come with a new system that signals opening and closing of doors with color lights. The carriages carry ample air conditioning, ventilation, and air purification, with accessible areas in the head cars.

Similar trains are produced under the name "Moskva" for the Moscow Metro since 2017. Tashkent Metro and TMH have a long history of fruitful cooperation. Since 1977, over 20 metro trains were shipped to Uzbekistan.
