The order is an option from a contract for 15 bidirectional vehicles, which was awarded in February 2018.

The additional vehicles will be funded in part using penalties for delays to the delivery of LRVs in the main order. The first five vehicles were due for delivery in January but are not expected to arrive in Gdansk before July. Pesa is incurring contractual penalties of Zlotys 8800 ($US 2300) for each day of delay.

Delivery of the first batch is now due to be completed by November.

All of the vehicles in the option are due to be delivered by the end next year.
