Breathing at Baku Metro to become easier


February 22, Fineko/abc.az. Baku Metro Company improves microclimatic conditions within the framework of improving the quality of services in the underground transport.

The Company informs that this year the Baku Metro intends to renew seven fans, whose service life has expired.

"The Baku Metro signed last year a contract with Artemovsky machine-building plant VENTPROM for purchase of seven new fans. The latter should be to Baku until May," it was reported.

The fans bought by the BMC are equipped with impeller on the motor shaft (4 CMV-24R fans and 3 CMV-20 fans) that are favorable for operation in the Baku Metro and will improve the quality of artificial weathering.
