NEWAG S.A. at InnoTrans 2016 — the biggest European rail transport fair in Berlin

From 20 to 23 Sep­tem­ber 2016, NEWAG S.A. par­ti­ci­pa­ted in the inter­na­tio­nal trans­port tech­no­logy fair Inno­Trans 2016 which was held in Ber­lin. NEWAG is a leading Polish com­pany manu­fac­tu­ring and moder­ni­sing rol­ling stock.

Our stand, loca­ted in Hall 3.2 and cove­ring approx. 200 m2, pro­ved very popu­lar. This claim is sup­por­ted by the big num­ber of meetings which took place as well as by the big num­ber of visi­tors to the stand. During the four days of this year’s event, we had a ple­asure to welcome many impor­tant guests inc­lu­ding Witold Sło­wik, Under­se­cre­tary of State in the Mini­stry of Deve­lop­ment, Szy­mon Ogłaza, Board Mem­ber of the Opol­skie Pro­vince with Bar­tło­miej Hora­czuk, Head of Infra­struc­ture and Eco­nomy Depart­ment and Jadwiga Raj­kie­wicz and Daniel Paszun repre­sen­ting Marshal’s Office of the Zachod­nio­po­mor­skie Province.

NEWAG pre­sen­ted two pro­ducts at Inno­Trans 2016. The first was IMPULS 36WEa – an elec­tric mul­ti­ple unit manu­fac­tu­red for the Opol­skie Pro­vince. IMPULS 36 WEa tra­ins are the first vehic­les fully com­pliant with ECTS.  They feature state-of-the–art drive and bra­king sys­tems, air-conditioning, modern audio-video pas­sen­ger infor­ma­tion sys­tem and a moni­to­ring sys­tem. Pas­sen­gers tra­vel­ling in com­for­ta­ble con­di­tions can recharge their elec­tro­nic devi­ces using 230V elec­tric soc­kets instal­led at each of 176 seats and they have a free wi-fi access. The EMUs are adap­ted for car­ry­ing pas­sen­gers with redu­ced mobi­lity and for trans­por­ting bicyc­les. They tra­vel at a maxi­mum ope­ra­tio­nal speed of 160 km/h.

In its basic ver­sion, the con­tract signed with the Opol­skie Pro­vince guaran­tees a deli­very of five EMUs with an option for two addi­tio­nal tra­ins. The net value of the con­tract with the option is PLN 71,820,000.

The other  vehicle pre­sen­ted by NEWAG was DRAGON — a six-axle elec­tric loco­mo­tive with an addi­tio­nal die­sel engine for shun­ting ope­ra­tions, which is ope­ra­ted by Fre­igh­tli­ner. DRAGON is a power­ful, safe, attractively-priced loco­mo­tive, fully equ­ip­ped and eco­no­mi­cal. DRAGON’s key advan­tage is its very high trac­tive force of the value of 374 kN which, in con­nec­tion with the loco­mo­tive weight of 119 t, a modern anti-skid sys­tem and an indi­vi­dual drive per each axle, allows it to pull very heavy fre­ight tra­ins. With the axle load below 20t com­bi­ned with a spe­cially desi­gned suspen­sion, DRAGON is per­fec­tly adap­ted to dif­fi­cult ope­ra­ting conditions.
