About us

TATRA-YUG is a large Ukrainian LRV and tramcar manufacturer and equipment producer since 1993, being an ideological follower of the world’s largest enterprise for production of trams – CKD “TATRA” (the Czech Republic, founded in 1927). “TATRA” was one of the co-founders of TATRA-YUG and handed us their technical knowledge and experience in the market. We manufacture different types of tramcars under individual orders considering all costumer’s requirements, such as climate features, conditions of track facilities and other relevant characteristics.

In the course of its history TATRA-YUG has organized the production of 7 types of tramcars. Their distinguishing features are:

  • 100% low-floor (K1T type), providing a barrier-free space along the salon. The vehicle is adapted for people with disabilities, has spaces for wheelchairs and ramp for entering the salon;
  • Two-stage suspension of bogies and multi-component braking system, which ensures the comfort and safety of passengers even in operating organizations with non-perfect rail facilities, minimizing the risk of derailment;
  • Air conditioning and heating system for the passenger compartment and driver’s cabin;
  • Robust and lightweight body that minimizes load on rails and as a result the wear and tear of the track facilities also decreases;
  • Elements of signaling, passenger counting system, Wi-Fi, USB chargers, video surveillance system and any other facility at the customer’s request.

TATRA-YUG also specializes on tram equipment, which includes traction converters, current collectors and electric motors. The design of our equipment is based on latest technologies (for example, converters with IGBT-transistors).
