“We are launching a very important facility for the city – the Nizhny Novgorod Electric Warehouse, which will serve about 40% of the future Big Circle metro line, which Muscovites are waiting for and which we should launch in the next few days,” said. “Without this deposit, such a launch would have been Everything is here: from the operation and repair of wagons to the rest of the locomotive crews.”
Currently, around 50 modern trains operate on the Big Ring. They are served by the Zamoskvoretskoye electric depot. After the opening of the remaining nine stations, the trains will run almost twice as many. The intervals in your movement will also be reduced, from 3.2 to 1.5-2 minutes.
The construction of a depot in the east of the city began in 2015. On the site, which was taken under, there was a plant for the modernization and construction of cars named after Voitovich. There they repaired long-distance trains, and now a large company with workshops will service the underground trains. In accordance with strict disinfection regulations, the carriages will be cleaned and washed daily and undergo further processing once every ten days. Here, too, 288 wagons will be repaired per year.
The subway rolling stock will be serviced by the wagon manufacturer under life cycle contracts. This guarantees the subway a better repair, diagnosis and washing of trains, in addition to saving up to 15% of the cost of maintenance of the wagons. The depot itself has 900 jobs. Of the 21 depots serving the metro, 11 have been built since 2011. In 2023-2024, three more will be added to them: Aminevskoye, Salaryevo and Yuzhnoye.
