Poland: Pesa’s first Dart electric multiple-unit on trials

Pesa’s first Dart EMU manufactured for PKP Intercity has started dynamic testing on Bydgoszcz – Warlubie railway line. PesaDart has exceeded 160 km/h during the trials. Further testing will be carried out by the Railway Institute.

In  May 2014, PKP Intercity and Pesa signed a PLN 1.3 billion contract for 20 eight-car Dart EMUs, including 15 years’ maintenance.

The EMUs have 352 seats, including 60 in first class, six toilets and space for six bicycles. 70% of components and sub-assemblies will be produced in Poland and more than 350 Polish companies will be involved.

The new rolling stock will start operating at the end of 2015, on the routes: Jelenia Góra – Wrocław – Łódź – Warszawa – Białystok/Lublin and Białystok/Lublin – Warszawa – Koluszki – Częstochowa – Katowice – Bielsko Biała.
