These days the Donetsk Electrotechnical Plant (DTEZ) started assembling trams of a new generation.
The trams of the DPR production will be equipped with reliable asynchronous engines (the current ones have DC engines) and the most modern electric control. This will reduce electricity consumption of new trams to 40 percent!
The first trams will come off the DTEZ production line will in the very near future. This is due to the fact that the electric transport park in the DPR is rather deteriorated. According to the experts of the Industry Ministry, today the DPR needs about 100 new trams.
"We will start to produce trams from scratch, they will be modernized compared to what we had had before," Minister of Industry Granovsky said.
