RegioJet has ordered a further 13 Traxx MS3 locomotives from Alstom.
This third-generation model is designed for use on electrified networks and equipped with ETCS Level 2.
The latest Traxx locomotive delivers increased operational performance and reliability, and when compared to earlier versions, comes with a higher energy efficiency.
In addition, maintenance intervals have been extended by 33% to improve availability and reduce maintenance effort.
RegioJet currently has a fleet of 22 multi-system locomotives, 18 of which are Traxx models.
The new additions will be used for domestic and cross-border journeys on electrified networks in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, and will also be equipped with the conventional signalling systems for these countries.
“We look forward to further deliveries of the new generation of Traxx MS3 locomotives. These modern locomotives are a reliable and proven part of our locomotive fleet.
“In addition to increased efficiency and lower operating costs, the new locomotives will enable us to further expand our quality and modern rail transport services under the RegioJet brand in the Czech Republic, as well as in other European countries.”
The locomotives are being manufactured at Alstom’s Kassel site in Germany. The bogies are provided by the Siegen site, also in Germany, while the body structures are being manufactured in Wroclaw, Poland.
Delivery is expected to begin next year.
“We're delighted to be able to continue contributing to making passenger and freight transport in the Central Europe region more efficient and sustainable with these 13 Traxx locomotives.
“We believe that this contract will open the way to other contracts we are negotiating with RegioJet.”
