NEWAG S.A. is implementing a PLN 257 million gross contract for supply of twelve five-unit trains from the ‘Impuls’ series. Koleje Mazowieckie is the Ordering Party. First trains will start operating in the second quarter of this year. The handing over of the whole rolling stock ordered is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.
In November 2014, Koleje Mazowieckie signed a contract with Newag for supply of twelve electric multiple units (EMUs) consisting of five units per each train from the ‘Impuls’ series. Under the contract, Newag will not only manufacture the trains but will also provide maintenance services, deliver the post-crash package and train the operator’s personnel.
The modern ‘Impuls’ trains will be able to travel with a speed of up to 160km/h. Each of the EMUs will have seating capacity of 206 in an open-coach layout and standing capacity of 325. Passengers will be able to enjoy a variety of amenities since each train will be air-conditioned, fitted with wi-fi access, electric sockets, the passenger information system and the intercom system. There will also be additional space for excessive luggage.
At present, the first EMUs, whose visualisations are presented below, are being manufactured.
