SHIJIAZHUANG, June 4 (Xinhua) -- CRRC Tangshan Co., Ltd., one of China's major train manufacturers, said Thursday it had won a deal to produce 40 train coaches for the subway operations of a Ukrainian city.

The company in Tangshan, north China's Hebei Province, will deliver eight trains for Kharkiv Metro in Kharkiv, the second-largest city in Ukraine, said corporate sources.

Each train, consisting of five coaches, will be 96 meters long, with a designed maximum speed of 80 km per hour, according to the sources.

The deal also included spare parts, tools and services.

The CRRC Tangshan bid for the deal in October 2019, and the result, scheduled to be announced by Feb. 10, was delayed twice due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The company has previously exported train coaches to other countries including Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Mongolia.
