Bussnang/Warsaw - Koleje Mazowieckie has ordered an additional 50 FLIRT multi-unit trains from Stadler. The Polish regional operator has relied on Stadler’s trains since 2006. The new contract amounts to 750 million euros.

Stadler has won a major order from Poland amounting to 750 million euros. The rail vehicle manufacturer based in the Swiss canton of Thurgau will manufacture a total of 50 electric FLIRT multi-unit trains for the Polish regional operator Koleje Mazowieckie according to a press release from Stadler. A corresponding framework agreement has already been signed. It also includes a maintenance agreement for servicing the vehicles for 18 years.

Stadler won over Koleje Mazowieckie as a client in 2006. Stadler established a production site in the Polish city of Siedlce within the context of a first order for 14 FLIRT units. The vehicles for the new contract are also to be manufactured there.

FLIRT trains currently make up a good fifth of Koleje Mazowieckie’s entire train fleet with 71 vehicles. Robert Stępień, President of the Management Board and General Director of Koleje Mazowieckie, commented in the press release: “In recent years, the FLIRT vehicles have become a permanent part of the landscape of Masovia.” He added: “We have had a good experience with the operation of Stadler vehicles and we are certain that the new trains will have an equally high or even higher standard.”

Philipp Brunner, Member of the Executive Board and Executive Vice President of the Division Central Europe at Stadler, stated that the new order would bring added value to the region and the industry, adding: “Increased production at the Siedlce plant means continued development of the site in Poland as well as further orders for numerous local partners and suppliers.” ce/hs
