Metro Warszawskie re-entered into operation the Inspiro trains

Metro Warszawskie re-entered into operation one of the Inspiro metro trains. Krzysz­tof Ma­law­ko, Warsaw Metro representative, stated that  the rest of four metro trains are going though tests. In addition, another eight Inspiro are located at Kabaty depot, waiting for necessary certifications. 

In February 2011, the Warsaw metro operator Metro Warszawskie Sp. z o.o. ordered 35 six-car metro trains from a consortium of Siemens and the Polish rolling stock manufacturer Newag. This was not only the biggest order Siemens had ever received from Poland, but also the first order placed for complete Inspiro trains. In November last year, an Inspiro train caught fire,  causing the hospitalisation of eight passengers and the evacuation of 200 people. After the incident, trains were put out of service service and tests carried out.

Siemens ensured that all the problems related to the current collector fixing mechanism which caused the fire incident has been fixed.
