ESTONIA: Pesa has been named the winner of a €50m contract to supply up to 23 trams to Tallinn from the second half of 2024.
The contract is due to be signed in May. The trams will be based on the Polish manufacturer’s Twist family; the single-ended low-floor cars will be 28·6 m long with five doors and have capacity of up to 300 people, including 65 seated.
Deputy Mayor Andrey Novikov said the order would make public transport in the capital greener and support the creation of new routes and lines, including to the port.
‘The new trams will also run on “green” electricity, like all the trams and trolleybuses we have’, said Denis Boroditš, Chairman of operator TLT.
