TZV Gredelj and NREC deliver diesel locomotives to Morocco Philip Wormald

CROATIAN rolling stock supplier TZV Gredelj and National Railway Equipment Company (NREC), United States, have completed the delivery of an order for 30 GT26CW-3W locomotives for Moroccan National Railways (ONCF).

The final two of the Co-Co single-cab units were shipped to Morocco from the Croatian port of Rijeka.

The new-build 2.46MW locomotives were assembled by TZV Gredelj and are fitted with EMD 16-645 engines, which have been remanufactured by NREC.

The two companies say they are planning to continue their co-operation and TZV Gredelj expects to sign a further contract to supply GT26 to a customer in Africa within the next few months.
