The seventh of 10 five-section, low-floor Electron trams has been delivered to a subdivision of Lviv’s Lvivelectrotrans transport utility.

The Lviv City Council announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.

In accordance with the established procedure, the new tram must undergo the relevant tests before beginning operation on the city’s tram routes.


"The tram will be able to operate on the city’s routes after the performance of all the preparatory work," Lvivelectrotrans said.

Lvivelectrotrans is upgrading its rolling stock with loans from the European Investment Bank (EIB). Lviv is participating in the "Ukraine Urban Public Transport" project, which is financed by the EIB. The city received a loan of EUR 12 million for purchasing 10 five-section, low-floor trams under the project.

Lvivelectrotrans purchased 10 five-section, low-floor trams from the ElectronMash company for EUR 17.3 million (excluding VAT) in 2020.

The delivery of the remaining three trams is expected by June this year.
