TMH Ships Four Metro Trains to Baku Metro


TMH Mytishi Plant manufactured and shipped 4 new metro trains to Azerbaijan for the customer Baku Metro.

The contract for 60 Series 81-765.4B/766.4B metro carriages – in the sets of 12 5-car metro trains – wassigned in October 2019. Its time scope is 2020 to 2023.

The tail cars of these trains are equipped with accessibility features and accommodations for baby strollers and bicycles. The unobstructed gangways between the cars make up a pass-through space for passengers to move inside and between cars, helping with social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The enlarged doorways speed up embarking and disembarking; and the newlight signaling system warns before the doors open or close. The trains carry a custom livery, custom headlight design, and a localized passenger information system. 

Series 81-765.4B/766.4B metro carriages feature advanced noise dampening, thermal insulation, and air conditioning. Their climate control systems use UV lamps to prevent the spread of infections, including COVID-19. The LED-based interior lighting adapts to the time of the day, changing from cold-white in the morning to warm-white in the evening, helping to concentrate and relax accordingly. USB outlets can be used to charge gadgets. The upholstery is made of long-lasting easy-to-clean material. 

TMH Mytishi Plant manufactures rolling stock for Azerbaijan’s capital since 1967. Today, Baku Metro operates over 300 metro carriages manufactured in Mytishi. Throughout 2018-2019, the factory shipped 8 5-car metro trains Series 81-765.4B/766.4B, receiving positive reviews of passengers and drivers.
