“We are interested in cooperation with global manufacturers of railway rolling stock, which have proven themselves on other railways around the world, including the wide gauge ones. Stadler, our potential partner, is one of the global leaders in the industry, and our main wish in such a partnership is the localization of production in Ukraine. After all, this is attracting additional funds to the economy and development of heavy industry in our country, “said Ivan Yuryk.

According to the head of Ukrzaliznytsia, Stadler trains can be used in suburban and regional passenger traffic, as well as in the City Express project. “ We invited our colleagues from Switzerland to consider our Kyiv Electric Car Repair Plant as a place of the production,. Stadler technicians visited it and a number of other locations in February this year. This is the optimal enterprise for the localization of production, because its main profile is the modernization of suburban trains, “summed up Ivan Yuryk.
