The framework agreement also includeed the right to exercise an option. In December 2018, FSE ordered another six EMUs and the agreement signed today sets out detailed terms and conditions of the contract performance. In total, eleven EMUs will be manufactured under the agreement.
The IMPULS EMUs manufactured by NEWAG S.A. are one of the most modern rail vehicles of this type in Poland. Thanks to meeting TSI requirements, they ensure comfort and safety to both passengers and train drivers. These EMUs will be the first electric multiple units in Western Europe manufactured by the Polish producer of rail vehicles.
