Siemens Mulls Metro Cars

Siemens is prepared to localize the production of metro cars in Russia if Moscow places an order, Dietrich Möller, head of Siemens Russia, said Thursday, as cited by Interfax.

He said the company would be interested in the project if at least 900 to 1,000 cars are ordered. In that case, the manufacturing facilities should be located outside Moscow, Moeller said.

"A large tender for the Moscow Metro is being prepared for this year," he said. "At issue is the supply of 2,500 cars before 2020, and we've decided that we will be taking part," he said, adding that Siemens has a chance of winning at least part of the tender.

He said Siemens is prepared to offer trains based on the Inspiro platform.
