The new metro trains of the Inspiro platform provide more comfort on metro Line M1 and on the new Line M2.
The Warsaw metropolis boasts a good 1.7 million registered residents and the number of metro passengers has tripled in just ten years.
In order to adapt the offered transport capacity to the ever-increasing ridership and to expand service to a wider inner-city area, the existing Line 1 of the Metro Warsaw has been extended, a second line built, and the vehicle fleet modernized and expanded with new trains.
In February 2011, Siemens was awarded the contract to supply 35 new six-car metro trains for Metro Warsaw – some 15 trains for Line M1 and the remaining trains for the new Line M2.
Metro trains for Warsaw
The metro trains for Warsaw – the first complete vehicles from the Inspiro family – were delivered to Warsaw by 2014. Lightweight construction methods and modern propulsion technology ensure a marked decrease in the consumption of energy. Energy savings combined with a recycling rate of approx. 95 percent make the Inspiro particularly environmentally friendly.
The forward-looking attitude of modern-day Warsaw is also reflected in the striking design of the Inspiro for the Polish capital. The open, modern interior – together with the unobstructed passageway throughout the train – contributes extensively to enhancing the passenger's sense of safety and comfort.
The train is based on the modular Inspiro platform from Siemens. The carbody is designed as a lightweight aluminum-profile construction. The six-car trains have 66 percent traction. In the depot, the trains can be split into two halves, which can be moved separately for shunting purposes.
The Inspiro design features a striking front car and side doors with a significant, octogonal visual effect.
The passenger compartment is decorated in the colors of the Metro Warsaw. In each passenger compartment are six displays for passenger information and a video surveillance system installed.
