According to him, the need for modernization of the depot arose in connection with the growing volume of work in the suburban hub and plans to increase the rolling stock of Lastochok in the Perm Territory.
“It will be a deep modernization of the depot itself with the construction of additional workshops. We will receive a modern enterprise with the latest technology in the city. The preliminary investment is about 2 billion rubles,” Panov said.
According to the deputy head of the SvZhD, the preliminary deadlines for the reconstruction of the depot are 2022-2023.
“In the future, by 2023, 80 rolling stocks will be serviced at the depot, by 2030 – 150 rolling stocks,” Panov added.
According to the Government of the Perm Territory, the Ural train repair center “Lastochka” in Perm will provide an opportunity to repair innovative trains, provide employees with workload and expand the geography of the depot: high-speed trains from Western Siberia and the South Urals to the regions of the Volga Federal District can be serviced on the Perm site. .
“The key thing in this is that we do not stop servicing the ED rolling stock at the same time and at the same time start servicing the Swallows, ensuring a smooth transition from electric trains that are nearing the end of their service life, and we are simultaneously embarking on a new rolling stock, that is, we’re not working there will be practically no enterprise, ”Panov emphasized.
