Further to the completion of the international Tender with a total budget of 155 million €,  the contract for the supply of 17 new Metro train sets was signed today; these trains will accommodate the needs of the network after the completion of the 10 new Metro stations.

are fully air-conditioned
are friendly to the environment

are aesthetically upgraded both in terms of exterior and interior appearance
are fitted with all the facilities for Persons with Special Needs
have all necessary provisions which render them capable to accept and be compatible with all technological upgrades to be carried out on the Athens Metro Lines 2 & 3 in the future.

Special emphasis was placed upon the energy consumption of the new train sets, and the minimization of energy consumption was the key criterion on which the bidding consortia competed. Thus, Series III trains of the Athens Metro will be, primarily, environment friendly.
