President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy inspected the DPKr-3 regional diesel train, which was built this year at PJSC “Kryukov Railway Car Building Works”.
The Head of State made a test trip on the diesel train on the route from Darnytsia technical station to Kyiv-Pasazhyrskyi station.
During a short trip, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of PJSC “Kryukov Railway Car Building Works” Volodymyr Prykhodko told the President that the train meets Ukrainian and European standards, so if one considers the possibility of exporting it, the only question is the width of the railway track. In addition, the body model is designed in such a way that it is suitable for running on suburban and regional routes, it is also designed for high platforms.
Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov noted that a total of 20 DPKr-3 diesel trains are planned to be ordered for JSC Ukrzaliznytsia.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy set a task for the representative of PJSC “Kryukov Railway Car Building Works” to offer a format of work in which these 20 trains can be manufactured over the next two years.
