Siemens has built a plant for production aluminium passenger train car bodies in the Sobovica Industrial Zone near Kragujevac, and the first products manufactured there will be exported to Austria, to be used in the country’s rail network – the Vecernje Novosti daily reports.

In Serbia, Siemens has, so far, built facilities spanning close to 40,000 square metres, and the plan is to add another 60,000 square metres, Novosti reports.
Another substation to be built
Also, the company is installing another substation of 110 kW power for the purpose of supplying the facility with power. This will also solve the problem of power supply in the villages between Kragujevac, Raca and Topola.
The project is worth around EUR 10 million, and the local government in Kragujevac has invested RSD 10 million in order to expand the main road from the centre of Sumadija to Subotica to accommodate Siemens.
