Metrowagonmash plant performed its obligations to Minsk subway ahead of schedule by sending out the final part consisting of 5 81-717.5М/ 81-714.5М metro cars to the customer’s address.
Under the terms of the contract signed in March 2012, the plant in Mytishchi manufactured altogether 25 cars of this version; they will be operated at three new stations. 81-717.5М/ 81-714.5М cars comply with the valid technical requirements in regard of the fire and electrical safety as well as ecological cleanliness. For the car saloon and driver’s cabin interior, fire-resisting and not easily combustible materials are applied. At the customer’s option, the cars are equipped with a radio station ensuring the driver’s communication with the subway control center and the traffic safety system. For the first time ever, a video surveillance system and pneumatic door mechanisms of enhanced reliability with extended service life are installed in the cars.
