“This is a breakthrough contract for urban rail vehicles – the tender in Warsaw was one of the largest in Europe, but we have been waiting for the decision for more than two years,” says Skoda president and chairman, Mr Petr Brzezina.
Škoda was awarded the contract ahead of Siemens-Newag, Stadler, Alstom and CAF. The contract also includes spare parts, a training simulator, an extended warranty and training. Škoda developed the fleet alongside Polish universities and design offices such as EC Engineering.
The trains will feature an internal and external audio-visual passenger information system and CCTV, and will include space for wheelchairs, pushchairs and bicycles. Each car will be 20m long with an aluminium car body, with each train 118.2m-long with capacity for up to 1500 passengers. The trains have a maximum speed of 90km/h, and are equipped with full electrodynamic braking in all occupancy modes with preference for regenerative braking.
