SEP 8, 2020 - 7:55 am
Bombardier Transportation delivered the first of three Bombardier TRAXX MS locomotives to Cargounit, a locomotive and passenger rolling stock leasing provider based in Poland. The next two multi-system locomotives are scheduled for delivery later this month.
“We’re pleased to offer our customers these proven TRAXX locomotives which are characterized by multiple country homologations and low operating costs,” Łukasz Boroń, CEO of Cargounit, said. “Adding multi-system locomotives to our fleet is a part of our core strategy aimed at fulfilling growing demand of our customers for modern locomotives for international rail transport in central and eastern Europe.”
The locomotives are authorized for operation in seven countries (Poland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and The Netherlands).
“With Cargounit being the largest Polish leasing company, we have now gained another important customer in this dynamically evolving market,” Peter Ammann, head of global business development locomotives at Bombardier, said. “We are committed to our locomotive business in Poland and are proud that our TRAXX carbodies are produced at the Bombardier site in Wroclaw, the city where Cargounit is also based.”
More than 240 TRAXX locomotives have been sold for operation in Poland and neighbouring countries. However, in the last 20 years, more than 2,300 TRAXX locomotives have been sold worldwide, including more than 600 TRAXX multi-system locomotives.
