This year, Liebherr-Transportation Systems will supply a total of 20 underfloor air conditioning units for new type IC+ InterCity passenger cars (Bpmz series) to the Hungarian state railway operator MÁV-START Zrt. in Budapest.

The cars will be used on domestic and international routes including the Budapest – Debrecen – Nyiregyhaza connection and then in Sopron and Szombathely as well as Pecs, Kaposvar, Dombovar and Miskolc.

The coaches were developed at the MÁV-Start repair workshop in Szolnok. Ten will be second class saloon cars, and the other ten will be multi-purpose carriages.

This order underlines the trust that the eastern European rail industry places in both the technology and the customer support of its long-standing supplier Liebherr-Transportation Systems.
