SOBYANIN: AMINYEVSKOYE ELECTRIC DEPOT WILL BE COMPLETED BY THE TIME OF THE LAUNCHING OF THE BIG CIRCLE LINE

“The construction of the Aminyevskoye electric depot will be completed by the time of the launching of traffic on the new sections of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of the Moscow Metro”, said Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow.

Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is a general designer and general contractor to build new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

“Three electric depots, including Aminyevskoye, where we are located, will be used for the operation of the Big Circle Line, which is being built on the instructions of the President of the Russian Federation at an accelerated pace. It is one of the largest electric depots not only in the Moscow Metro but in the whole country. It is the timely launch of the electric depot that will make it possible to launch the Big Circle Line as planned”, said Sergei Sobyanin, according to AGN “Moskva”.

According to him, the Moscow Metro has more than 20 electric depots available now.

“A metro construction site is a giant construction site: the length is huge with tunnels, utilities, the large number of stations that are extremely difficult to erect. The extensive work, which is equally complicated, is going on to provide rolling stock: repair, maintenance. This requires the construction and renovation of electric depots, which are currently more than 20 in the Moscow Metro. Half of them are newly built or reconstructed”, said Sergei Sobyanin.

Recall, the Aminyevskoye electric depot is located in the Mozhayskiy district. The construction is carried out on the territory of the former industrial zone with an area of about 15.7 hectares. The electric depot will comprise 63 buildings and facilities. It will create 1,350 jobs.

In addition to the Aminyevskoye electric depot, Zamoskvoretskoye and Nizhegorodskoye electric depots will maintain the rolling stock of the BCL.

Creation of the Big Circle Line is the principal project of the Moscow Metro construction. Its length will exceed 70 km, and it will accommodate 31 stations, 22 of which are already open to passengers.
