Train sets of a new generation with systems supplied by UniControls will soon start running on a St. Petersburg Metro line

2nd August 2013

In 2007 to 2013, Škoda Transportation a.s. and Вагонмаш ЗАО implemented development and production of the prototype train set known as “Něva” which is intended for the St. Petersburg Metro system. UniControls was involved not only as the supplier of components of the train control&monitoring and vehicle camera systems, but it supplies program equipment as well. The train set uses current modern technologies and is a highly appreciated replacement for the existing vehicles.

The prototype train set was delivered to the St. Petersburg Metro at the beginning of July 2013 and now it is prepared for operation with passengers on the Line no. 3. At the same time, series production of another eight train sets is underway.
