Iranian knowledge-based companies and tech firms unveiled a largely localized subway wagon during an event held last week in Tehran.
The achievement is expected to alleviate the country’s dependency on foreign resources for subway development plans.
After years of planning and hard work, around 85% of key parts of subway wagons have been localized by tech teams and knowledge-based companies, the Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology reported on its website Isti.ir.
Reportedly, bogie suspension, gangway connection, brakes, wagon wheel and passenger information systems are among numerous components developed by local tech firms.
The unveiling event was attended by Sorena Sattari, vice president for science and technology, Mohsen Hashemi, Tehran City Council chairman, Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi and Manaf Hashemi, Tehran Municipality’s deputy for transportation, who were accompanied by several state officials.
