Minsk Metro placed an order for six four-car and four five-car trains in January 2017. Each 78.4m-long four-car set will accommodate 168 seated passengers and 588 standees (at 5p/m2), while the 97.7m-long five-car trains will accommodate 212 seated and 737 standing passengers.
The aluminium alloy-bodied 825V dc third-rail trains are equipped with EPM-ATP asynchronous traction motors. The fleet will be deployed on the 17.2km Line 3 from Zeleny Lug to Kurassovshina, the first phase of which is due to open later this year.
Minsk Metro says it is considering purchasing further trains from Stadler to gradually replace the existing line 1 and 2 fleets.
