Russia: The Ust-Katav Car-building Plant (UKCP) has informed ROLLINGSTOCK that it will start installing the system on the 71-628 trams and their modifications.

The vehicles are now in service in Chelyabinsk and St. Petersburg. New trams with the system will be delivered to Chelyabinsk this summer, and in January, UKCP signed contracts to supply further trams to the city, including 25 low-floor vehicles.

Although UKCP does not specify the parameters to be monitored, it stresses that the system will cover “quite a lot” of them, from tram components to rail infrastructure. Telemetry data will be available both online and on record. “The user of the system will always have full information about the condition of a vehicle”, says UKCP. The software for the system has been developed by a third party.
