The con­tract guaran­tees the deli­very of twe­lve three-car EMUs and five four-car EMUs. More­over, Newag must also deli­ver a simu­la­tor to train a team of train dri­vers how to ope­rate the new tra­ins. Under the ten­der, the Con­trac­ting Autho­rity may incre­ase its order by ten addi­tio­nal trains.
