On 13 May 2015, at the TransCaspian 2015 transport and logistics trade fair in Baku, it was formally announced that Stadler will provide five four-car double deck EMUs for suburban services. The contract, signed by Stadler Rail CEO Peter Spuhler and ADY chairman Cavid Qurbanov, is worth between 60 and 70 million EUR. The new 3 kV DC trains will be delivered surprisingly quickly, this being achieved by using a couple of Aeroexpress EMUs, which are currently being built at the Minsk works. The first two KISSes are to arrive in Baku in time for the First European Games (12 to 28 June).
