IMPULS trains from NEWAG already delivered to SKM Trójmiasto

On March 4, 2016, in Gdy­nia, two IMPULS 31WE tra­ins manu­fac­tu­red by NEWAG S.A. for PKP Szybka Kolej Miej­ska in Trój­mia­sto were offi­cially han­ded over.
The cere­mony, which star­ted with a ride on the new train on the route Gdańsk Główny — Gdy­nia Cisowa, was atten­ded by repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of the local autho­ri­ties, mana­ge­ment of PKP SKM Trój­mia­sto and NEWAG S.A.

“We wish to con­gra­tu­late SKM Trój­mia­sto on their 15th anni­ver­sary. We are glad that NEWAG’s IMPULS tra­ins will be the first brand new elec­tric mul­ti­ple units which will service the routes of SKM Trój­mia­sto. I would like to add that this year NEWAG is also cele­bra­ting the 140th anni­ver­sary of its foun­ding,” said Zbi­gniew Konie­czek, Pre­si­dent of NEWAG S.A. “ Our IMPULS tra­ins are cutting-edge EMUs which stand out not only due to their design but which also pro­vide com­for­ta­ble and safe tra­vel­ling con­di­tions,” added Mr Konieczek.

The two new IMPULS tra­ins pro­du­ced by NEWAG S.A. for SKM Trój­mia­sto under the con­tract signed on 23 March 2015, are four-unit tra­ins 74 400mm long with pas­sen­ger capa­city of 529, inc­lu­ding 359 stan­ding capa­city and 170 seating capa­city. They dif­fer from the IMPULS 31WE tra­ins pro­du­ced so far by the num­ber of doors and the floor level. At the carrier’s requ­est, each car has four doors and the floor height is adap­ted to the SKM plat­form level (960mm), which is higher by 200mm as com­pa­red with the stan­dard ver­sion of IMPULS 31WE. The tra­ins are fit­ted with an addi­tio­nal retrac­ta­ble step to cover the gap between the train and the plat­form. These IMPULS tra­ins are fit­ted with retention-tank toilets adap­ted to the needs of pas­sen­gers with restric­ted mobility.

Elec­tric Mul­ti­ple Units (EMUs) manu­fac­tu­red by NEWAG S.A. are one of the most modern rail vehic­les of its kind in Poland. Com­fort of tra­vel­ling is ensu­red by quiet, air-conditioned inte­rior, ergo­no­mic seats, Inter­net access and elec­tric soc­kets. IMPULS tra­ins are eco­no­mi­cal and safe – their elec­tri­city con­sump­tion is low due to energy recu­pe­ra­tion to the over­head line. The train is equ­ip­ped with a modern visual and audio pas­sen­ger infor­ma­tion sys­tem, inte­rior moni­to­ring and con­tact with the train crew thro­ugh the inter­com. The train meets strict Euro­pean cra­sh­wor­thi­ness and resi­stance stan­dards. Its maxi­mum ope­ra­ting speed is 160 km/h.

The gross value of the con­tract was PLN 35 571 600 (PLN 28 920 000 net).
