Bucuresti launch

01 Jun 2002

On May 22 the Managing Director of Bucuresti metro operator Metrorex Marius Lapadat took part in a special event to mark the launch of new rolling stock for Line 2. The first of 18 six-car Movia trainsets was demonstrated by builder Bombardier Transportation to Metrorex officials and other potential customers.

The 750 V DC stainless-steel bodied train was built at Kalmar and Västerås in Sweden, and will undergo a programme of trials before entering service later this year. The rest of the fleet will be assembled by Electroputere at Craiova under a technology transfer agreement. Bombardier's contract is valued at €108m.
