Ostrava Public Transport (DPO) awarded Stadler a Koruna 1.4bn ($US 67m) contract in January 2017 to supply 30 of the two-section unidirectional LRVs, with an option for 10 additional vehicles.

Each 24.9m-long LRV will accommodate up to 188 passengers, 61 of them seated. The trams are equipped with air-conditioning, wide doors and a wheelchair ramp.

The remainder of the fleet is due to be delivered by June.
