As part of a project to purchase a modern Iasi streetcar fleet, the city has signed a contract with Poland's Pesa for the delivery of 16 Swing 30-meter trams with a capacity of 240 passengers (60 seats). The contract is valued at PLN 130 million (EUR 28 million).

This contract is part of the Public Transport Development program implemented as part of the Integrated Urban Development Strategy 2015 – 2030 Iași and its metropolitan region for 2015 - 2030. The program is managed by the local government of Iași and the Romanian Ministry of Regional Development.

The new Swing trams feature modern systems for monitoring and diagnostics, air conditioning, and passenger information.

"16 Pesa Swing trams already run in Iasi and have a significant impact on improving public transport in our city. I want to thank the Polish company for the perfect implementation of the contract as well as for the quality of the vehicles which is already known by the inhabitants. The collaboration with Pesa and through the European financing the City Hall is providing its citizens a modern, green, and smart public transport," said Mihai Chirica, the Mayor of the Romanian city of Iasi.

"I thank the city authorities and people involved in the implementation of this project for the trust and excellent cooperation here in Iasi. For us, this order was also important because it showed in practice the impact of the Pesa 2026+ Strategy we have adopted. We delivered high-quality vehicles ahead of schedule, achieving customer and passenger satisfaction," Krzysztof Zdziarski, the President of Pesa said.

Besides the mayor and president of Pesa, the ceremony was also attended by the State Secretary of the Ministry of Regional Development and Administration, Claudiu Răcuci.

Polish manufacturer Pesa has been active in Romania lately. The company has submitted a bid to supply 49 streetcars to other Romanian cities and is currently implementing a contract to supply 17 trams to Craiova. In addition, Pesa plans to offer its electric trains to Romanian railroads.
