Electric traction is the only present-day solution for environmental problems in the city context. Electric traction is safe, economical, reliable and with a minimum environmental impact. The tram (or LRV, Light Rail Vehicle) is increasingly being seen as a cost-effective, environment-friendly and attractive solution to the urban transport crisis. New demands for energy efficient, reliable and safe rolling stock require purchasing of new vehicles, which is always a bulky financial burden on the rolling stock owner. In many cases, the replacement of entire rolling stock to obtain a new and more efficient technology is not economically feasible. Introduction of new energy saving technologies on old but not yet established own resource trams/LRVs in recent years has become a very attractive approach.
