Following a competitive tender, MZ placed a €25m order with the former CSR subsidiary last June for two 25kV 50Hz ac EMUs and four DMUs. The 140km/h low-floor articulated EMUs will accommodate up to 200 passengers and have been designed to meet European EN 15227 crashworthiness standards.

The order is being financed with the aid of a €988,000 loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
