Stadler delivers further trains to PKP Intercity in Poland


Stadler is being awarded the contract for the delivery of twelve FLIRT type electric multiple units  
for PKP Intercity. After the expiration of the appeals period, the contract is now legally binding and
can be signed.
The Polish railway company PKP Intercity has awarded Stadler the contract for the delivery of twelve electric
multiple unit FLIRT trains including the maintenance for 15 years. The period for appeals expired unused
on 22 July. This concludes the tender procedure announced in December 2017. The signing of the contract
takes place today at the Stadler plant in Siedlce, Poland, with representatives of the Polish Ministry of
Infrastructure and Stadler Chairman of the Board of Directors Peter Spuhler. The value of the contract, which
includes the delivery of the vehicles and the 15-year maintenance, amounts to 270 million Swiss francs. 
The contract covers twelve eight-car electric multiple unit FLIRT trains in the long-distance version. The new
fleet will complement the series of 20 vehicles labelled ED160, which were delivered to PKP Intercity in
2015. The trains have been operated on the polish railway network since December 2015, having covered
more than 23 million kilometers since then. The trains are characterized by high reliability and availability. 
The trains belong to the latest generation FLIRT in the long-distance version. Their lightweight, aluminium
structure reduces operating, energy and maintenance costs, translating into tangible benefits for the carrier.
The vehicles are fully compliant with the Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI). The extensive
range of interior accessories ensures a highly comfortable journey. Passengers may use first-class and
second-class compartments as well as a dedicated lounge bar. The trains have ergonomic seats, modern
toilets and an efficient air-conditioning system. They have electronic displays where one may follow route
messages, and an advanced passenger information system. Every seat is equipped with a socket and
individual lighting. There are also accommodations provided for people with reduced mobility.
