Earlier this month, KONČAR - Electric Vehicles has produced and delivered 10th Electric Multiple Unit for regional transport. It is the last train for regional transport of the first phase of the contract realisation that KONČAR had concluded with HŽ Putnički prijevoz (Croatian Railways - Passenger transport).
The train itself and its main parts (electronic transformers, transformers, drive and tow electro motors) are being developed and produced by KONČAR Group branches, in collaboration with numerous Croatian and foreign companies. In compliance with the obligations of the contract, KONČAR delivers two trains per month to HŽ Putnički prijevoz, and the realisation of such production dynamics confirms once again that the domestic industry is capable of carrying out even the most demanding projects.
After a series of trains for regional transport, the production of Electric Multiple Units for local and intercity traffic continues in KONČAR’s plants. The first train from that series will be put into traffic by the beginning of October of this year. As a part of the first phase of the contract,10 electromotive trains for local and intercity transport are going to be made along with a diesel electric train that will be delivered by the end of 2015.
