TRAXX electric locomotive agreement

Bombardier Transportation and Poland’s Koleje Mazowieckie – KM have signed an agreement worth approximately €41m (£35m) for the delivery of 11 TRAXX electric locomotives.

The new two-cab electric TRAXX P160 DC locomotives, which can operate at speeds of 160km/h, are planned to run Koleje Mazowieckie’s double-deck coaches in push-pull operation.

At present, Koleje Mazowieckie operates 37 double-deck coaches, also manufactured by Bombardier, in daily passenger transportation.

The agreement includes a four-year maintenance agreement, plus training of Koleje Mazowieckie employees.

Delivery of the locomotives is scheduled for summer 2011.
