Kiev selects Pesa for tram contract Pesa

KIEV tram operator Kyivpastrans has awarded Pesa, Poland, a contract worth around €11.5m to supply 10 Fokstrot low-floor LRVs for use on the Ukrainian capital's 279km tram network.

The 1524mm-gauge 600V dc three-section vehicles will be 26m long and deliveries are due to be completed this year.

Pesa delivered a Fokstrot to Kyivpastrans last October for trials, and the manufacturer says certification of the vehicle is due to be completed by June.
