All major components, including electric and power systems as well as the control system will be manufactured in Warsaw and in Nowy Sącz,” emphasised Zbigniew Konieczek, NEWAG’s CEO.
The total net value of the orders made under the agreement may reach a maximum of EUR 60 525 000, whereas the executive contract amounts to EUR 20 175 000.00 net.
The new trains will enter operation starting with December 2016.
