Ingeteam has won a new European railway traction contract for the Polish manufacturer PESA, who has once again placed its trust in the company’s own technology. Specifically, Ingeteam will equip 60 locomotives with 120 high-power traction converters, to be supplied in 2023 and 2024.
The new locomotives will run in in Poland and neighbouring countries, reaching a top speed of 160 kph. The manufacturing process is set to be led by the company’s factory in Ortuella in Bizkaia province, which will take on the challenge of producing the largest volume of traction converters manufactured by the factory since it was opened in 2019.
Ingeteam was also awarded a similar contract last year, to equip more than 100 of PESA’s locomotives, which will travel some 85,000 km a year.
