STEP will build a Sapsan and Lastochka high-speed train overhaul depot in Metallostroy industrial zone. The client is the German company Siemens –  a high-speed train manufacturer and service company.

The facilities will cover 10.3 thousand sq.m and will be located in the railway depot of the Saint Petersburg – Moscow Oktyabrskaya railway in Metallostroy (Slavyanka river-LEP, 16th km section).

According to STEP's project manager, Andrey Sumskoy, construction is planned to be completed by spring 2016. "During this time, the first technical inspections and repairs of Sapsan and Lastochka trains will be performed". Under the contract, the company will prepare all the necessary working documentation for the project and will build the depot, including auxiliary premises and internal utility networks", he said.

According to STEP's CEO, Yuri Ioffe, this project is of great importance in a period of economic uncertainty. He stated that, "If a project financed by a major German company is implemented under current conditions, this would mean that Russia remains attractive to foreign investors, in particular for high-tech and infrastructure projects".
