17 Jul 2017

RUSSIA: Sole bidder Elektrotransport has been selected to supply five trams to Novocherkassk. The model has not yet been announced, but the tender specifications suggest Uraltransmash’s 71-407, despite the trading company having previously worked with UKVZ.

The tender specifies 16 m long trams with at least 39% low-floor and capacity for 110 passengers at 5/m2, including 27 seated.

The new trams will augment the city’s current fleet of 16. Deliveries are due to take place within 70 days of the signing the 81·5m rouble contract.
