THE Pomeranian Voivodeship in Poland has signed a contract with domestic manufacturer Newag to supply two Impuls EMUs with an option for another 29 trains.

The call for tenders was put out by the Pomeranian Voivodeship at the end of June and Newag won the order with an offer of Zlotys 69.98m ($US 14.92m) for the initial contract. The unsuccessful bidder, Pesa Bydgoszcz, made an offer of Zlotys 104.91m.

The contracting authority may exercise the option to order up to 29 more EMUs no later than March 31 2023.

The deliveries of the initial two EMUs will be performed within 24 or 36 months from the signing conclusion of the contract, depending on the configuration of the EMU.

If the ordering party exercises the option of ordering additional Impuls trains, a separate delivery schedule will be established, with the proviso that all deliveries should be completed within 54 months of the option being exercised.

The contract with Newag has a value of Zlotys 56.9m net, which constitutes the remuneration for the performance of all contractual obligations. The value of the contract including the option for 29 additional trains is Zlotys 904.9m net.
