At NEWAG S.A. cutting-edge electric locomotives GRIFFIN and DRAGON were created.
Railway transport cross European countries with their different power supply systems may pose a serious and costly challenge to carriers. E4MSU Griffin, which belongs to a family of 4-axle electric locomotives, is the first Polish multisystem locomotive adapted to be used both with the 3kV direct current power supply system, as used in Poland, and with 15kV or 25kV alternating current power supply systems which are used in other European countries. Its interoperability and multisystem option makes this locomotive suitable for homologation in most European countries.
DRAGON electric locomotive is the first completely Polish-designed locomotive produced in Poland in the last 25 years, destined to pull heavy freight trains. The mono-system DRAGON is the first traction vehicle of a six axle locomotive platform which is adapted to the European market. It is powerful, safe, economical, fully-equipped and, most importantly, very reliable.
After one year in operation, this locomotive reached an average reliability ratio of 99.8%. Competitively priced, both GRIFFIN and DRAGON locomotives distinguish themselves from other locomotives offered on the European market.
