Overhaul of 48 double-deck wagons and 12 electric locomotives
Electric locomotives and double deck wagons of Tehran Metro line 5, by passing time and specified distance, needed overhaul repairs. So despite of all shortages, the overhaul project started for 48 double-deck wagons and 12 electric locomotives from Aug.2006 by Tehran Wagon Manufacturing Co.
This can be done within the country, using local experts and specialists. In addition to job creation, technology transfer, reduce dependence on the construction of complex mechanical and electrical parts and ... too much foreign exchange was saved.
This project was completed in March 2009.
