Croatian rolling stock manufacturer TZV Gredelj has delivered a modernized diesel-electric locomotive to Kosovo’s national railway operator Trainkos Sh.A. The vehicle will be used for both freight and passenger transport.
The two companies have started cooperation back in 2008, when Gredelj won a EUR 2.5 million contract for the modernization of an EMD G16 diesel electric locomotive. Following the modernization, reconstruction and re-motorization project of diesel-electric JT 38CW-DC series locomotive, in 2010 the Croatian company signed a new contract for another diesel-electrical locomotive upgrading. This cooperation continued after Gredelj commenced bankruptcy proceedings and in 2013 Gredelj delivered a 661 003 overhauled locomotive.
All contracts concluded withTrainkos are results of international public tender procedures.
